Food Island Day was a one-day symposium hosted by the Food Island Partnership to bring together food processors, growers, exporters, food tourism operators and industry associations to learn more about emerging food trends, best practices and networking with others in the industry.
A new industry led, government supported partnership will engage primary industries, food producers, culinary experts and research institutions to expand food exports, create new products and cement Prince Edward Island’s reputation as a world class producer of food and leading culinary destination.
The new Animal Welfare Act will modernize the province’s animal welfare legislation and improve the ability of provincial authorities to act in cases of animal neglect or abuse.
The Department of Agriculture and Forestry is asking gardeners to plant only tomato varieties with a proven resistance to a new strain of late blight. This will help ensure a healthy crop and at the same time protect the province’s $1 billion potato industry.
Implementing good biosecurity practices has significant economic, environmental and community benefits for all Islanders.
