In 2018, the Rural Agri-Innovation Network (RAIN) led a delegation of northern Ontario businesses to the Restaurants Canada Show 2018. The Show was a success for these 8 businesses where over 423 contacts were made that resulted in an increase of $656,000 in new sales to their businesses (see Taste Northern Ontario Case Study).
The Restaurants Canada Show has grown significantly to attract 19,500 national hospitality professionals, restaurateurs & buyers and RC Show 2020 will be the biggest yet.
The RAIN is now reaching out to northern agri-food businesses to generate interest in attending the RC Show 2020 on March 1-3 2020 in Toronto at the Enercare Centre. With enough interest the RAIN would seek competitive rates and funding to assist businesses to attend.
The event is a valuable experience for agri-food businesses that distribute to the food service industry or that would like to test their products in this sector.
