Investment of $415,000 for local food promotion 21 February 2017
FREDERICTON (GNB) – The provincial government is budgeting $415,000 to promote local food and beverages in 2017-18.
“Job creation and economic development are the top priorities of New Brunswickers and of government,” said Agriculture, Aquaculture and Fisheries Minister Rick Doucet. “New Brunswick households spend about $2.6 billion on food each year; imagine the economic development possibilities if even half of that food were produced right here at home.”
