Your local Co-op is proud to support local farmers. Products are fresh and taste great. Transportation is reduced, limiting greenhouses gases, and you’re supporting your local economy. During harvest, produce can go from the farm to your local Co-op in days.
The Grown at Home initiative let’s you know you’re purchasing high-quality products grown in Western Canada. Co-op is also helping build the horticulture sector through partnerships, such as the one with the Prairie Fresh Food Corporation in Saskatchewan – a group of 16 producers marketing local products under the Home Grown Saskatchewan brand.
The Prairie Fresh Food Corporation provides twenty-two products to participating Co-op food stores across Saskatchewan, including: baby beets, baby carrots, beans (green and yellow) beets, carrots, cauliflower, corn, cucumbers, dill, garlic, kale, kohlrabi, lentils, onions (medium yellow, sweet jumbo), potatoes (yellow and red creamer, yellow and red new), radish, rhubarb, saskatoon berries, strawberries, wheat, zucchini.
