B.C.’s food and beverage producers, processors and industry associations can now apply for the next round of Buy BC funding to help increase sales of local food and beverage products, and strengthen the province’s food economy.

“British Columbians are keen to buy local and support the farmers, producers and processors in their community,” said Pam Alexis, Minister of Agriculture and Food. “Through the Buy BC Partnership Program, our government is ensuring homegrown products are highlighted while making it easier for consumers to buy B.C. This strengthens both local food security and the competitiveness of our B.C. agriculture and food sector.”
