Would you like to know if the food you are eating is gown in Chatham-Kent? Are you looking for a way to promote your locally grown food in Chatham-Kent?
The Chatham-Kent agriculture community is announcing a new initiative to show people in Chatham-Kent and around the world that we really do “grow for the world”.
A new branding program has been developed through partnerships with Chatham-Kent Agri-Development (CKAD), Chatham-Kent Food Policy Council, Chatham-Kent Public Health Unit, and Chatham-Kent Economic Development Services. Together, they are launching a “Grown in CK” brand.
The “Grown in CK” brand has been developed to be used by farmers, producers, or any business people in the value-added food chain who want to promote Chatham-Kent agricultural products, both within and outside of Chatham-Kent.
This brand will help people to know where their food comes from by providing a recognizable logo that they can use to buy foods that are “Grown in CK”. Look for the logo or ask if your grower is part of the branding program!
For more information on how to incorporate the “Grown in CK” brand in your CK food products, please contact Kim Cooper, Agriculture Specialist with the Municipality of Chatham-Kent at 519-351-7700 x 2030 or
