For many people, harvest time is when local foods really hit their radar. And who can blame them – country fairs, ripe, delicious produce, Thanksgiving dinner… these are things we all look forward to.
But choosing Atlantic can be just as exciting once the cooler weather comes. In fact, your Co-op has tons of great Atlantic choices that can bring great tastes your family loves all through the year.
As the region's local and Atlantic food leader, Co-op is now proud to introduce Eat Atlantic Thursdays! It's a friendly reminder to all Atlantic Canadians to make food from here a central part of your diet all through the year.
Eating Atlantic reduces transportation for a healthier environment
- At Co-op, we are committed to reducing the distance your food has to travel before reaching your plate, by offering as many Atlantic choices as possible.
- 25% of all greenhouse gases and carbon dioxide produced in Canada is linked to the transportation sector. Eating Atlantic helps reduce this impact.
- By eating local or Atlantic products, we can know more about how our food is grown, and have a say in farming practices.
