Premier’s Award for Agri-Food Innovation Excellence
On June 17, 2011 it was announced that Taste of Nature won a Premier’s Award for Agri-Food Innovation Excellence. This award was designed by the provincial government in 2006 to recognize examples of innovation by farmers in the running of their businesses and to encourage even greater innovation across the province’s agri-food sector for the future.

The Go Ontario! bar is an excellent example of local farmers working closely with Taste of Nature to give consumers great tasting, local choices.
