Celebrating Ontario Agriculture Week

Oct 09, 2023

Guelph - Ontario Pork is proud to join commodity organizations across the province to celebrate Ontario Agriculture Week, which runs October 2 to 8.

This week marks an important acknowledgment of the continued contributions made by the agriculture community. 

Ontario Pork is proud to represent 997 pork farmers who work diligently to provide a nutritious and protein-rich food source for millions of people here at home and around the world. 

Ontario Agriculture week is dedicated to:

  • Celebrating the abundance of food Ontario farmers produce.
  • Recognizing everyone the industry employs and the communities supported by agriculture, and
  • Highlighting the economic output the agriculture industry delivers for the province. 

The Ontario pork industry alone contributes over $1.35 billion to the province’s GDP while employing nearly 20,000 full-time equivalent jobs. Multiple that across the other agriculture commodities and it's evident that farmers are not only feeding our province, but they are also a driving force behind a strong and functioning economy.

This week we take time to celebrate Ontario's rich agriculture heritage which has paved the way for the success of future generations.
