The Town is committed to working with the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) to support our local farmers and encourage innovation to meet the needs of our community now and in the future.
The Town of Georgina has teamed up with the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs and York Region to bring a Selling Food to Ontario webinar to food businesses. This webinar teaches businesses how to create new opportunities for their farm or food business by learning how to expand into new markets such as restaurants, food service, food retailers, institutions and other wholesale buyers.
