WOODSTOCK - Ontario consumers have chosen a winner for the tender fruit display contest. The award goes to Longo's #16 in Oakville for building the most creative display of Ontario tender fruit.
"Congratulations Longo's #16 in Oakville for showcasing Ontario's tender fruit in such a delicious and inviting way," said Ernie Hardeman, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs. "By participating in the Foodland Ontario Retailer Award display contests, you are helping shoppers choose locally grown produce. When we choose to buy local, we are supporting our farmers, our environment and our economy."
There are two more contests for consumers to vote in throughout the fall. By following Foodland Ontario on Instagram or Facebook, Ontarians can choose their favourite from the top three grocery store displays. The grocery store display that receives the most "likes" wins the contest.
The annual Foodland Ontario Retailer Awards are the produce industry's premier competition for excellence in retail display and promotion in support of local Ontario foods. This year, for the first time ever, consumers can decide who created the best display.
Retailers enter seasonal display contests which run from mid-April to November. In 2018, over 4,250 entries were submitted with almost 6,000 photos of compelling displays featuring fresh Ontario produce.Source : Ontario
