When it comes to shopping for your family’s groceries, everyone has different preferences & priorities. That goes double for produce: freshness, source, and price are all important factors. Maybe you don’t even give it a second thought – ‘an eye test, then into the basket!’
But there is more going on behind the scenes than you may realize. Educating yourself on where your food comes from, and what it takes to get it to your local market or grocery store may surprise you… and make you a better, smarter consumer.
Rural Ontario farmer Chris Renwick offers some insight into the advancements in farming that are given a boost to our Canadian food supply: ‘ We’re using a lot of technology… GPS, Agronomists, & plant science… which in turn helps us to have a lower cost for the crop’
The journey to your refrigerator starts right at the seed, and the modern Canadian farmer is doing everything they can to bring you fresh, Canadian produce; in ample supply and at economically competitive prices.
