Local producers in British Columbia have a new way to market their meat directly to chefs in the province.
The BC Association of Abattoirs has created an online ordering tool.
The BC Beef Network connects provincial chefs directly with local producers and processors of certified BC beef.
It allows those chefs to browse producer profiles which tell the story of how their beef was raised.
A spokesperon for the BC Association of Abattoirs says it’s one of the ways they’re addressing the growing trend to buy local.
The BC Beef Network was developed with funding from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada and the BC Ministry of Agriculture.
