Get to know your farmers!
Alberta on the Plate has an overarching goal of celebrating the incredible bounty of local farms, producers, food artisans and restaurants all across the province. With that in mind, the festival is introducing a Networking Series to help forge new and strengthen existing relationships between Alberta restaurants and producers. This will help to grow the market demand and support of local products within our restaurant community.
About the Networking Series
While the original intention was to host these sessions in person, for 2020 the two sessions will be hosted virtually, using a digital platform. Each session will feature two primary ingredient focuses with up to 4 producers, rounded out by a small selection of other producers. The featured producers will each have five minutes to introduce their farm/products and will be followed up with a moderated Q&A period where you can ask any questions you want of our producers. We will also have representatives from our partner organizations who will give you an overview of the state of those industries in Alberta. The specific producers being featured will be sent out closer to the session date.
