We are all connected by food!

Shop at your local farmer's market, BBQ, try a new recipe, or dine at your favorite restaurant - it's a great way to celebrate Food Day Canada on Saturday.

Agriculture Minister David Marit encourages everyone to take time to share their food stories and show appreciation for the agriculture industry.

Food Day Canada originated as a way to support the Canadian cattle industry in 2003. 

Now its an annual summer celebration of not only the agriculture industry, but also the culinary culture and food management system.

The agriculture industry plays a key role for the province, setting a record in 2021 with $17.5 billion in agri-food exports.

The province's farmers produce a variety of crops including providing 98 per cent of Canada's lentils,  and 80 per cent of Canada's durum.
