Supply Chain Resiliency Project

As part of the government’s Grow Ontario Strategy, the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) launched the Food Security and Supply Chain Fund in 2022.

Through this fund the Ontario government has worked with industry partners and invested $10 million to:

  • Address supply chain issues
  • Reduce agri-food sector vulnerabilities
  • Increase resilience
  • Strengthen the food supply for Ontarians

In 2023, OCO received funding for this project from OMAFRA delivered by the Agriculture Adaptation Council through the government’s Supply Chain Stability and Adaptability Program stream.. This funding was used to conduct three reports focused on Ontario Organic value chains:

  • The Ontario Organic Dairy Value Chain Report
  • The Ontario Organic Corn and Grain Value Chain Report
  • The Ontario Organic Wine Grape Value Chain Report 

OCO is excited to share these reports in full and highlight the key findings uncovered through this important work.
