Taste Real

Launched in 2011, Taste Real started out as the new branding initiative of Guelph Wellington Local Food developed to support local businesses, farms and producers who are passionate about the way local food is grown, prepared, presented and enjoyed, and how real it tastes! Taste Real is now a County of Wellington initiative and continues to support the same local businesses, farms and producers.

Taste Real was developed with stakeholder engagement and is built upon the many successes of promoting local food that have taken place across the region. Working together with our partners and supporters, we are growing one of the most vibrant, local food economies and food tourism destinations in Ontario.

When you see the Taste Real logo, you know that you are experiencing food grown close to home and that you are also supporting local small businesses and farms.
