We may soon see more locally produced food in grocery stores and restaurants.
The Wynne government is renewing its push for the Local Food Act after previous legislation died when the legislature was prorogued.
If passed, it would help make more local food available in markets, schools, grocery stores and restaurants.
The agrifood sector in Ontario is worth more than 34-billion dollars a year to the provincial economy and employs more than 700-thousand people.
Premier Wynne is also the Minister of Agriculture and Food.
