Ontario cares about our farmers and encourages consumers to show their support for beef and pork farmers by buying and enjoying Ontario meat products.

“Our beef and pork products are among the best in the world,” said Deepak Anand, MPP for Mississauga-Malton. “High-quality, local meat is a great choice during BBQ season and I encourage everyone in this riding to pick beef and pork produced here and show solidarity with our farmers.” 

MPP Deepak Anand joins Ernie Hardeman, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, in asking consumers to give the province’s 19,000 beef farmers and 1,200 pig farmers a boost following China’s temporary restrictions on imports of Canada’s beef and pork products. 

“I stand with our farmers in the province and those across the country, and I support the federal government’s efforts to resolve this situation,” Hardeman said.

Ontario is working with the federal government, other provinces and Ontario’s beef and pork sectors to ensure the province’s meat products have fair access to markets while also exploring supports that can be provided to farmers.
