The evolving pandemic has brought to light the importance of promoting agri-food products in local markets, purchasing locally sourced supplies, and selling direct to consumers. Join French-speaking partners (southern Quebec, Eastern Ontario and the Aube region of France), to discuss innovative ways to make it easier for residents, tourists, and businesses to buy local. These initiatives promote local products and short distribution chains to limit the number of go-betweens and bring producers in closer contact with consumers.
