Driving Growth for Ontario’s Agri-Food Industry

October 7, 2013

Premier Challenges Sector to Double Its Growth Rate, Create Jobs

Premier Kathleen Wynne recognized excellence in agri-food innovation today and challenged the sector to double its growth rate and create 120,000 new jobs in Ontario by 2020.

She issued the challenge as part of a keynote speech at the Premier’s Summit on Agri-Food Innovation at Queen’s Park, encouraging agri-food industry partners to help Ontario:

  • Become one of the top five places in North America in revenues for food and beverage manufacturing; and
  • Double its agri-food exports.

The summit also celebrated the contributions of local producers to the overall success of the agri-food sector.

The Premier presented the Premier’s Award for Agri-Food Innovation Excellence to Monforte Dairy of Stratford, Ontario. Monforte Dairy implemented a Community Shared Agriculture micro-financing model to raise capital to build a new plant.

The Foreign Affair Winery of Vineland, Ontario received the Minister’s Award, for re-engineering air flows to their vineyard to apply the Italian “appassimento” method of wine-making to Ontario-grown grapes.

The Premier presented the Leaders in Innovation awards to:

  • Thompson’s Maple Products, Hilton Beach, Ontario for developing “Tap Track,” a wireless monitoring system that improves quality, efficiency, and reduces costs for maple producers.
  • Y U Ranch, Tillsonburg, Ontario for their hybrid gas/electric freezer delivery mini-van known as the “Farmer’s Market Express.”

Supporting a strong and innovative agri-food industry is part of the government’s three-part economic plan to invest in people, invest in infrastructure and help businesses grow and create jobs.

QUICK FACTS

  • The agri-food sector has grown more than 10 per cent since 2002.
  • Ontario’s agri-food sector contributes approximately $34 billion to the province’s economy and supports more than 740,000 jobs across Ontario.
  • Food exports hit a record high of $10.8 billion last year.
  • A total of 50 regional agri-food innovations will be recognized under the Premier’s Award for Agri-Food Innovation Excellence program.

QUOTES

“I want to congratulate all of our award recipients today. They have shown us that the agri-food sector has excellent potential for growth. I have extended this challenge today, so we can build on our strengths to create more good jobs for the people of this province.”
— Kathleen Wynne, Premier of Ontario and Minister of Agriculture and Food

Ontario Serves Up Local Food Bill

March 25, 2013

Supporting Ontario’s Agri-Food Sector, From Farm to Fork

The new Ontario government is re-introducing legislation today that, if passed, would help make more local food available in markets, schools, cafeterias, grocery stores and restaurants throughout the province.

If passed, the Local Food Act would:

 

  • Increase local food awareness, access and sales by setting local food goals and targets in consultation with stakeholders
  • Enable government to work with public sector organizations toward these goals and share information on their progress and results
  • Proclaim a “Celebrate Ontario Local Food Week” that would begin the Monday before Thanksgiving
  • Require the government to produce a local food report on its activities to support local food

 

 

The proposed legislation is part of a broader local food strategy that encourages the growth and development of markets for foods grown and made in Ontario, and provides funding for innovative and collaborative local food projects.

Promoting local food is part of the new Ontario government’s plan to strengthen the agri-food industry, build stronger communities and create jobs that will grow the economy.

QUICK FACTS

  • The province will hold consultations with stakeholders on a new provincial designation system that could help promote foods of a particular region, standard of production, or unique product attribute.
  • The Ontario agri-food sector contributes more than $34 billion to the provincial economy and employs more than 700,000 people.
  • Ontario’s food processors purchase about 65 per cent of the good things that are produced on the province’s farms.
  • Ontario is home to Canada’s largest food processing sector.

QUOTES

“Eating local isn’t just good for Ontario families – it’s good for our economy. That’s why our government will continue to work with the agri-food sector, including retailers and food service operators, to bring more Ontario food to the table.”
— Kathleen Wynne, Premier and Minister of Agriculture and Food
