The local purchase is becoming more and more popular, and for good reason! Did you know that according to the Quebec Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAPAQ), fruits and vegetables consumed in Quebec travel an average of 3000 to 5000 kilometers before finishing in the bowl of Fido. Buy locally allows to reduce this distance by 5 to 10 times, and by the same token, pollution associated with greenhouse gases.
The impact on the local economy is also significant. According to the CPQ, if each citizen spent $ 20 more a week on goods and services of Quebec origin, Québec's economic activity would be increased by 2%, which would result in the creation of 100,000 new jobs.
Canada can also count on some of the most stringent food standards, excellent control over ingredients and their provenances, and better traceability of meat. All this to offer your companion products of exceptional quality. Products made here by people here.
Buying local is an economically, socially and environmentally beneficial option.
