Choose Delicious Ontario Beef and Pork

Published on July 12, 2019

Shopping for Ontario meat products during BBQ season supports our local farmers.

Ontario cares about our farmers and encourages consumers to show their support for beef and pork farmers by buying and enjoying Ontario meat products.

“Ontario beef and pork products are world-class,” said Natalia Kusendova, MPP for Mississauga Centre. “Locally produced, high-quality beef and pork are great options for the summer BBQ season. I believe we can all do our part to support our hard working Ontario farmers.”

MPP Kusendova joins Ernie Hardeman, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, in asking consumers to give the province’s 19,000 beef farmers and 1,200 pig farmers a boost following China’s temporary restrictions on imports of Canada’s beef and pork products.

“I stand with our farmers in the province and those across the country, and I support the federal government’s efforts to resolve this situation,” Hardeman said.

Ontario is working with the federal government, other provinces and Ontario’s beef and pork sectors to ensure the province’s meat products have fair access to markets while also exploring supports that can be provided to farmers.
