The B.C. Government’s Buy Local Program

Buy Local Program

The B.C. government is expanding the Buy Local program with an additional $2 million to help B.C. farmers and food processors promote their products, and support food security in B.C.

With the additional $2 million investment, the Program aims to increase consumer demand and sales of B.C. agrifoods. Businesses and organizations can apply for matching funding from the B.C. government for projects that promote local foods. Projects can include in-store promotions, social media or web campaigns, traditional advertising or other ideas.

Applications and more information about the program are available @ www.iafbc.ca.

Building the local market for B.C. foods is a key commitment of government’s Agrifoods Strategy, a component of the B.C. Jobs Plan, to lead the agrifoods sector growth into a $14-billion-a-year industry by 2017.
