Ontario Food Terminal expands mandate

The Ontario Food Terminal is opening up to more agricultural products.

“Broadening what can be sold at the Ontario Food Terminal from fruit and produce to a larger selection of agricultural products would diversify the array of products available for sale, including for example Christmas wreaths and decorative corn. This would in turn increase economic opportunities for both buyers and sellers at the Terminal,” the government said.

“These changes reflect some of the Terminal Board’s recommendations, which are consistent with the goals of the Main Street Recovery Act of making Ontario more Open for Business and supporting local businesses in their recovery from COVID-19,” it said.
