Celebrating Ontario’s 25th Agriculture Week with Dine Ontario

The Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and Rural affairs and the Ministry of Tourism, Culture, and Sport are collaborating to launch a new initiative to promote Ontario restaurants and the great things that are
grown and produced in our province.

From October 1-8 they are partnering with Restaurants Canada on a new campaign called Dine
Ontario (#DineOnt), and all restaurants are invited to participate! Dine Ontario will provide free
promotional materials to restaurants that feature an Ontario food or seasonal dish special during
this time period, and we encourage, where possible, including a feature beverage such as
Ontario wine, beer, cider or spirits. This could include highlighting current Ontario menu items or
a new creation for this week.

For those that don’t already carry Ontario products, we will be providing resources to help locate
suppliers that carry Ontario food and beverages. Staff will also be available to support
throughout the duration of this promotion.

This promotion coincides with the 25th annual Ontario Agriculture Week, which celebrates all of
the amazing food and beverages that our province produces, as well as our hardworking
farmers and food processors.

Restaurants play an important role in our food supply chain and this promotion will help showcase the great things that are grown and produced in Ontario. Customers will be encouraged to dine-in and enjoy the very best that Ontario has to offer.

If you would like to participate in the Dine Ontario campaign, we encourage you to visit
