To learn more about our local organic food system, Canadian Organic Growers – Perth-Waterloo-Wellington commissioned an exploratory study and is pleased to release the findings. The study interviewed key actors in the local organic food system in our area, including eaters, farmers, restaurants/caterers, buying clubs, processors, and natural food stores. These conversations revealed some interesting trends and challenges in the alternative system. The report provides a series of recommendations to aid the local organic food movement and its actors in building a stronger system.
