Food and beverage processing has always been part of our heritage within the County of Renfrew, though generally at a small local level. Today a number of new businesses are growing and selling their products at home as well as distributing regionally and nationally. From preserves, sauces, baked goods and cheese, to craft beers and soon too, craft spirits. Local entrepreneurs are taking their skills and traditions and innovating to create products that rival any from around the word when it comes to flavour and freshness.
With a local supply of wholesome, healthy and sustainable ingredients, a strong tourism sector and easy access to major urban markets, the County of Renfrew makes for an excellent base for the development of new food and beverage product manufacturing.
