Food and Localization

  1. Foodlink: Foodlink Waterloo Region is a non-profit organization (incorporated 2002) seeking to create partnerships with food producers, processors, retailers and consumers to promote the sale and consumption of locally grown and produced food. In building a “food localism” movement, Foodlink intends to identify, expand and create new markets for local farms and farm-based businesses while also building a demand for local food products. Foodlink is emerging as both a marketing tool for regional farmers and an information source for regional consumers. We are helping producers increase and diversify farm-gate sales—especially those directly to the consumer. We are also helping consumers identify with their food—what is available, how it’s produced and how buying locally benefits our local economy, environment and community. (Canada)
