Co-op, in collaboration with Wanuskewin Heritage Park, has launched a new line of bison products in Co-op food stores across Western Canada with a portion of the proceeds going back to the non-profit park.
The bison are sourced in Alberta, the products are produced in Saskatchewan and sold across Western Canada. The packaging includes artwork by Linus Woods, an Ojibway-Dakota artist from the Long Plain First Nation in Southern Manitoba. With a portion of the proceeds staying at Wanuskewin to support cultural programming, all aspects of the project are uniquely Western Canadian.
The products include bison burgers, jerky, meat sticks and smokies, and discussion about future products is already underway. All four products hit store shelves in late October.
