Did you know 98% of BC Farms are family owned and operated?
British Columbian farmers have a competitive advantage over many other jurisdictions because of its worldwide reputation for producing safe, high-quality and high-value food products. Our Buy BC: Eat Drink Local campaign connects our world-class restaurant and culinary scenes with the engine that drives them – the farmers that bring the uniquely BC groceries, wines, beers and spirits to the kitchen.
Why connect farmers and chefs? Because farmers grow, harvest and produce high quality products – and chefs bring creativity and great taste to preparing and presenting them for customers every day. We want BC diners to have more memorable dining experiences to taste the difference that BC makes on the plate!
