We believe supporting BC brands has a positive impact on the people in our communities, local food security, the local economy, and the environment.
What is "local" to BCLocalRoot.ca?We have chosen to look at local from the provincial level and celebrate the diversity and abundance of food and beverage brands within BC. We acknowledge that there are many interpretations of "local" and one is not more correct than the other.
BCLocalRoot.ca currently represents brands from 9 regions across the province.
People & Community
We support BC producers and processors because they work so hard to make our food and deserve the recognition. They are our family, friends, and neighbours.
We strive to create meaningful connections between consumers and the food they purchase from us by highlighting the people behind the brands.
When you buy a product that was grown or made in BC you are buying it from someone in your "community" and therefore your purchase is positively impacting the lives of people in your "community".
We believe that it is our responsibility to support a secure province-wide food system by educating our consumers to the importance of purchasing and eating local.
BC has more than 4,000 food brands available in this vibrant and diverse local economy. We believe that everything we truly need is right here at home in BC.
Our recent shared experience has shown us how easily global supply chains can be disrupted. We believe it is important to nurture our local producers and processors.
