Halton Region comprises Burlington, Milton, Oakville and Halton Hills.

A growing number of people in Ontario are realizing the benefits of supporting local food, chefs and farmers.

We believe in local cuisine and Chefs using and promoting recipes and dishes using Ontario grown food.

Eating local food creates jobs.

Ontario’s agri-food sector employs more than 700,000 people and contributes more than $33 billion to our economy.

The Halton Pumpkin Trail’s roasted butternut squash with ginger and chili was a big hit with delegates as was the pumpkin and star anise soup; thank you Chef Mark for developing these modern classic recipes with Halton produce.
