Coming Soon

Manitoba Agriculture is putting the final touches on a business-to-business Manitoba Food Product Directory to promote Manitoba businesses that grow, process and/or package food products and ingredients.  With increased interest in sourcing food products and ingredients locally and regionally, this Food Product Directory will make it easier to identify and source Manitoba products and ingredients.  The directory will be published online in the fall of 2019.  If you would like an electronic copy prior to this date contact us at:   Sourcing local food and ingredients has never been this easy!
