The Government of Ontario is investing over $115,000 to help increase consumer demand for locally grown grapes and to launch a new table grape variety. The funding will be provided to the Ontario Fresh Grape Growers Marketing Board, intent on increasing marketing activities during the local grape season.

Niagara to benefit from investments
Sam Oosterhoff, MPP for Niagara West, told: “While Niagara is known for our famous wine grapes and fresh peaches, our region is also a key producer of table grapes. This new funding will help diversify production at local vineyards and highlight the innovative spirit of growers in Niagara. Whether producing wine, juice or table grapes, our tender fruit farmers grow some of the best produce in the world.”
