local food partnership

Together with their partners, Middlesex County’s Department of Economic Development and Tourism is proud to announce the launch of the latest “From our Hands to Your Table” video campaign. This second installment of the engaging video series showcases producers in Middlesex-London and Sarnia-Lambton working together with restauranteurs to bring local dishes to life.

The project related website, allows the public to enjoy the videos in the series and learn more about each project partner and the importance of sourcing local ingredients. “It’s comforting to know the quality of the food you’re being served. Not only are you supporting a local restaurant but also a local producer. It doesn’t get better than that,” says Middlesex County Warden, Alison Warwick. “There are many incredible culinary partnerships in our region. It’s important to promote these relationships to encourage more local businesses to collaborate and show consumers there’s a fresh, local story behind the food on their plate,” adds Cara Finn, Director of Economic Development and Tourism.

In addition to receiving funding from Ontario’s Southwest Tourism Corporation, Middlesex County was once again joined by Tourism Sarnia-Lambton, Middlesex-London Food Policy Council, Sarnia Lambton Economic Partnership, Middlesex Federation of Agriculture and Lambton Federation of Agriculture in spearheading this impactful conversation. Featured businesses in the current campaign include Clock Tower Inn & Bistro, Frisa Farms, Rusty Wrench Brewing Company, and The Hop House from London-Middlesex and Shale Ridge Estate Winery, Widder Station Golf, Grill and Tap House, Giresi’s Pizza, and Zekveld’s Garden Market from Sarnia-Lambton.
