Think Local Gifting this Holiday Season!

Concerned about supply chain issues this year? This season try local gifting. 

As Martha Barber, the creator of the most delicious shortbread and cookies at Martha’s Delectables, recently said at the Island Good – Recipes for Success’ session at the ‘State of the Island’ Economic Summit, “consumers can feel good about purchasing our products, knowing it’s a local product through Island Good.”

The Island Good brand and website is a simple, headache-free way to source Island Good products and retailers. Make your shopping easy-peasy and order an Island Good Gift Box — a ‘taste of Vancouver Island’ shipped anywhere in the world.
