Innovative Ways to Sell Agricultural Products Direct to Consumers -- in French and English
The evolving pandemic has brought to light the importance of promoting agri-food products in local markets, purchasing locally sourced supplies, and selling direct to consumers. Join French-speaking partners (southern Quebec, Eastern Ontario and the Aube region of France), to discuss innovative ways to make it easier for residents, tourists, and businesses to buy local. These initiatives promote local products and short distribution chains to limit the number of go-betweens and bring producers in closer contact with consumers.

Le contexte pandémie en évolution a mis en lumière l’importance de valoriser les produits agroalimentaires sur les marchés locaux, de s’approvisionner localement, de commercialiser en circuits courts. À travers cette conférence, donnée en collaboration avec des partenaires de la francophonie (Sud du Québec, Est de l’Ontario et Aube en France), vous découvrirai plusieurs options pour faciliter l’achat local tant pour les citoyens, les touristes que les entreprises. Ces initiatives valorisent les produits locaux et les circuits courts pour développer l’économie locale et les communautés rurales.

The first hour will be in English and the second hour will be in French. You are welcome to join one or both hours. The presentations will be the same but the Q&A may vary.
