Ontario's suppliers

Both local and international buyers source products from Ontario suppliers. Our suppliers have an excellent reputation for flexibility and customer-focused service.

They offer:

  • proven experience with custom production runs
  • the ability to serve specialty markets
  • agricultural and multicultural diversity.

Thousands of Ontario companies provide same-day supply and support services. Just as important, Ontario suppliers are known for being ahead of the curve with food trends. Ontario agriculture and research are innovative in supporting alternative crops, such as ginseng. We also develop new products, such as omega-3 eggs, for emerging and growing markets.

These strengths have positioned Ontario for success in key growth food processing markets, such as private label and healthy and ethnic foods.
