Urban Media Partnership

The “New Farm” editorial media partnership was launched May 1, 2017 with full page editorials in the Toronto Star and MetroNews in major urban centres across Canada.  CCFI is helping with providing support for poll questions to ask urban Canadians and a Best Food Facts banner to answer common questions and provide credible expertise.  This program will reach three million urban consumers each week in print alone, with opportunities for multiplying that through social media.  Watch for the weekly feature running for 21 weeks – or more with new funding support.
