Foodland, Longo’s and Starsky Fine Foods stores honoured at Foodland Ontario Retailer Awards

Three grocery stores in Markdale, Ont., Hamilton, Ont. and Stouffville, Ont. have been honoured at the Foodland Ontario Retailer Awards.

The Foodland, Longo’s and Starsky Fine Foods stores received awards of excellence and 57 other grocery stores were also recognized as part of the event.

“Our team at Foodland Markdale strives to provide customers with the best quality produce, and that usually means Ontario’s very own local food,” says Tawnya Tersigni, manager of the Foodland store in Markdale. “You could say that local food is the bread and butter of our business and  that is why we are proud to work with Foodland Ontario and the provincial government to promote it.”

For more than 35 years, the Foodland Ontario Retailer Awards have recognized grocery stores across the province for their unique and innovative displays that promote locally grown food.

As part of this annual program, retailers enter photos of their in-store displays that promote locally grown and in-season fruits and vegetables.

“Congratulations to all the winning stores across Ontario and thank you to everyone who works hard to create great displays promoting Ontario-grown foods,” says Rob Flack, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Agribusiness. “Your commitment to promoting fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables deserves recognition, as it helps to support everyone across the food supply chain and grow the provincial economy.”
