Viability of the Fruit and Vegetable Industry in the Greenbelt Study
$98,000 - March 1, 2007

The OFVGA is comprised of 28 member organizations representing more than 7,500 farmers throughout the province.

Representing all fruit and vegetable farmers, growers, and industry members in Ontario, the Ontario Fruit and Vegetable Growers’ Association (OFVGA) is assessing the economic viability of the agricultural industry in the province, and ways to improve it for the future.

This economic impact study is the first of its kind, looking at the Greenbelt as an agricultural region within Ontario through an in-depth picture of the fruit and vegetable industry in this near-urban agricultural area. The study examines the economic viability of the industry and the impacts of recent changes in land use legislation. It also looks to future opportunities, in particular the economic significance of having eight million consumers within driving distance and how farmers might benefit from this rural-urban relationship.
