Its commitment to local suppliers has earned Food and Catering Services a claim as a champion of Ontario food.
The provincial agriculture ministry has approved the right of the University of Windsor to display its Foodland Ontario logo, recognized as the best way to help consumers identify food produced in the province.
“This is a real honour,” says executive chef Paolo Vasapolli. “Being part of the Foodland Ontario promotion program validates our approach to supporting jobs and economic growth across the province, especially in our Windsor-Essex communities.”
The department has printed up stickers it plans to affix to its wares as applicable.
Foodland Ontario was established in 1977, and partners with producers, processors, retailers and the foodservice sector to promote consumption of Ontario products.
