The Buy Manitoba program announced in April has started to work with local restaurants to use found-in-Manitoba products.
Through a two-page spread in Ciao! magazine in the October/November issue, eight Winnipeg restaurants are featured that use ingredients from Manitoba food companies Bothwell Cheese, Dunn-Rite Chicken, Peak of the Market, and Winkler Meats.
“Our goal is to help consumers connect the dots between regional food products they purchase at the grocery store, and restaurants using those same products to create their culinary masterpieces,” said Megan Deaust, Buy Manitoba program manager. “We want Manitobans to realize that they can still support local food processors and producers when they dine out — it’s all about choices!”
Buy Manitoba is a multi-year public awareness campaign developed to encourage consumers to purchase more processed and fresh Manitoba foods.
