Meet The Buyer Networking Event

Meet Key Grocery Chain and Industry Buyers

OFVC is pleased to offer a unique opportunity to help Ontario farmers meet key grocery chain and food industry buyers to create value-added business opportunities.

This event, now entering its 4th year, is an excellent opportunity to gain first-hand insight into sourcing requirements as well as speak directly to key personnel and explore potential supply opportunities.

The event starts with a brief introduction of the participating buyers including an overview of their organization. The introductions are followed by ‘speed-dating’ style, one-on-one meetings allowing participants to meet, learn, and network about their role in the value chain and how to create value-added business opportunities.
