Savor Island Good Foods @ Breakfast, Lunch & Dinner.
Hear how Island Good producers & retailers are improving sales.
Last year, consumer response to Island Good was plain to see with a sales lift of 16.4% in our pilot project. And Summit delegates raved about our Summit meals when we decided to serve only Island food and drink.
Since then, we’ve licensed Island Good with an expanding number of producers and retailers; built islandgood.ca to serve licensees and aid consumers; and partnered with Tourism Vancouver Island to bring Island Good to tourists who are always looking for local products.
And, of course, VIEA is now committed to serving all Island Good food and beverages at the annual ‘State of the Island’ Economic Summit!
One of our 16 concurrent sessions will be a panel led by Island Good Chair, Dan Dagg of Hothouse Marketing who will speak about the 2020 direction for Island Good, and featuring licensees Tammy Averill of Country Grocer, Erin Neely of Comox Valley Airport, Dave Brimacombe of Wayward Distillery. and Jaymie Collins of VI Farm Products each sharing their Island Good stories.
