Program Supports Promotion of Ontario Food Products
The Market Access Stream offers funding for businesses of up to 50% (typically between $10,000- $130,000) for partnered activities and investments that will boost provincial consumer awareness, access and/or purchasing of Ontario farm food products. Funding can be requested for supporting product preparation, processing, storage, marketing, sales, and distribution. Eligible project costs include but are not limited to equipment purchases, facility upgrades and retrofits, consulting and professional fees, wages of existing and new employees allocated to the project, as well as promotional, communication, translation and other incremental expenses. All applications must be made by two or more project partners, which may include public institutions, producers, processors, cooperatives, co-packers, distributors, retailers, contract caterers, and Ontario municipalities. Individuals are not eligible for this government funding program. The deadline for a Letter of Inquiry is April 26, 2017.
