CANADA, September 24 – Members of British Columbia’s food and beverage industry will gather at the Every Chef Needs a Farmer, Every Farmers Needs a Chef event this fall and winter.

“This event is a great opportunity for chefs to meet people in our agriculture and food industry, and learn more about the amazing ingredients and products available in BC,” said Lana Popham, Minister of Agriculture and Food. “And for farmers, ranchers, shellfish growers and other producers, being able to showcase their best to the restaurant industry helps bring more local flavors to tables around the province, and enhance the provincial food system and the food economy”.

The third Every Chef Needs a Farmer networking event, Every Farmer Needs a Chef welcomes farmers, chefs and food service professionals after a three-year hiatus. This season, the event returns with two smaller half-day regional events: one in Victoria on November 7, 2022; one in the Okanagan on February 28, 2023.

“As chefs, it’s our job to celebrate putting food on BC’s tables and highlight the stories of producers, farmers, fishermen, makers, artisans and processors from across our great province,” he said. said Ned Bell, chef ambassador for Buy BC. “The two unique Every Chef Needs a Farmer events allow chefs, cooks and restaurateurs to come together to meet with the people and families responsible for providing food for our tables and build those relationships essential to buy from the our province to create delicious dishes that support our fellow British Columbians to grow and succeed.”

Exhibitors from B.C.’s agricultural industry, farmers, ranchers and producers, will be invited to present their products and share information about the variety of what is produced in different regions of the province. The event will also include speaker sessions with chefs, farmers and local food samples.

The Every Chef Needs a Farmer, Every Farmer Needs a Chef event is part of the Ministry of Agriculture and Food’s Buy BC marketing program. Buy BC helps farmers, ranchers and producers market their products as locally grown, raised, harvested or produced, making it easy for British Columbians to buy BC.
