Local purchasing policy

Food Basics has made a formal commitment to bring our customers more local products in-store.

The program is based on three guiding principles that will allow us to optimize the access and promotion of local products, making the company:

  A unique showcase for regional products
  A key partner of Foodland Ontario and associations that promote Ontario products
  A key partner for innovative suppliers


Love Local

The first phase of the implementation will start with a pilot program in the fall, which will then be adapted for the wider provincial market according to the roll-out plan.

This program further solidifies the role that Food Basics will play in highlighting Ontario products in our stores, and commits to a long term plan within our global approach to corporate responsibility.
