B.C.-Made Food Products

When you buy local, you help build a stronger communities. Local businesses buy from other businesses in the community — growers, makers, manufacturers, graphic designers, accountants, repair services and credit unions, just to name a few. An amazing number and variety of food products are made right here in B.C. Their producers are committed to being the best employers, to creating great jobs, and they buy from local suppliers and support a stronger community.

The B.C. Buy Local campaign encourages consumers to shift at least 1% of their spending — just $15 — to a local business, or a local grown or local made product. If all consumers make a 1% shift, it will create 3,100 jobs and sends $94M in wages to workers in B.C. Check out more reasons to buy local.

Look for B.C.-made products wherever you shop to support your community and a stronger economy in B.C.!

This campaign was funded by the Government of Canada’s Shop Local Initiative, with funding dispersed through the BC Chamber.
