The Northeast Alberta Food Marketers Association was incorporated on October 6, 2010 as a not- for- profit association.
It is a coordinated effort to ensure that Local Food is readily available to the consumers of the region.
We want to ensure that the skill of food production is not lost. We encourage acreage production that can possibly provide a primary or secondary income for the producers. To increase awareness and use of the regional food processing facility located at Portage College. This small batch Food Sciences Centre serves both the students of the College and entrepreneurs in the food sector.
Our effort will address demands from consumers that are increasingly wanting to know where their food comes from. The Association has worked with Community Futures St Paul – Smoky Lake Region to develop a regional Brand that is Trade Marked and owned by Community futures for the time being.
The Brand is a regional identifier only, it does not offer quality guarantees of any kind. Users must sign a license agreement to use the brand. In it they agree that the products being branded were produced, grown or processed in this region.
As a consumer we encourage you to view the producer and processor pages as well as the marketers page. Here you will find the Agricultural Products being provided and how to find them.
