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
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.
