This first time event is a food show with a twist. The London Chamber of Commerce and Western Fair District realize the strengths of working with agriculture and agri-business by connecting to the consumer and highlighting the job opportunities within the sector.

Marketing Boards from across the province are being asked to be exhibitors. They will be asked to provide a sample of their product to be tasted by the event attendees, along with the recipe of what is being served, so that they can purchase their product and make it at home.

To make the event interactive the attendees will be asked to vote for their favourite recipe.

The twist to Amazing Grazing is that there will be an educational awareness component, placed beside each booth. It will be a "menu" of sorts which will include:

~ jobs that are available in getting their product from the farm to the consumer's fork.

[Examples include vet, farm manager, accountant, transport truck driver, processing plant workers, retail store manager, banker]

~ the skills needed for these jobs and the education required.

~ as well there will be "did you know" type facts such as:

~ 1 in 9 jobs in Ontario are in the Agri-food sector

~ 3 jobs exist for every agriculture graduate with a bachelor's degree

Exhibitor spaces are 10 x 10 and include a banquet-sized table, power, drapery & Wi-Fi.

Total is per 10 x 10 space is $150.00 plus HST.

Global leaders gather to take action on sustainable livestock production

Livestock are seen as both a source of greenhouse gas emissions and a solution to climate change. To help bring balance, dialogue and understanding to an often-contentious issue, the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations last fall hosted the first-ever Global Conference on Sustainable Livestock Transformation. 

Feeding the Future

The agri-food industry is the most important in the world – we all need to eat. Research and innovation have enabled tremendous change in the livestock sector, and we can expect that change to increase in rate.

Cargill Dunlop Employees on Strike

Beef Farmers of Ontario (BFO) and the Ontario Cattle Feeders’ Association (OCFA) are aware of the strike action that began today as of 12:01 a.m. following the rejection of the negotiated settlement by members of UFCW Local 175 working at the Cargill Dunlop facility in Guelph. The Cargill Dunlop facility employs 950 people and processes 1,500 head of cattle per day.
