VG Meats celebrates Food Day Canada

Food Day Canada is an annual event that honours local food, and we’re ready to celebrate. This year, Food Day Canada is happening on Saturday, July 31st — just in time for the long weekend! (By the way, have you stocked up on food for the long weekend yet? Our summer BBQ collection is a great place to start, and our premium products are always a big hit.)

VG Meats is proud to be a fourth generation family business here in Ontario, and we’re dedicated to putting Ontario beef, chicken, lamb and pork products on the map. It’s not just our job — it’s our passion! — and Food Day Canada is all about supporting businesses like ours. Here’s what you need to know about Food Day Canada.

We love local food

VG Meats is known for its exceptional quality, but that’s just one part of the puzzle. We strongly believe in supporting local food producers, whether it’s like-minded butchers or a local farm that produces incredible Ontario produce. We believe in treating animals and our environment with respect, and using regenerative farming practices that support a better future for our community and the planet. Our ethics are clear and present in all that we do. We feel strongly about transparency and being honest about where our meat comes from. We are fully traceable and all of our products are raised without hormones or unnecessary antibiotics. And yes, everything tastes amazing. That’s how it should be!

Shop, cook and dine Canadian

Families are invited to join in the Food Day Canada celebrations by pledging to shop, cook and dine Canadian on July 31st. You can share this pledge on social media using the hashtag #FoodDayCanada — it’s a great way to thank a local farmer while encouraging others to follow suit. And, the celebration doesn’t have to stop — you can shop local all year round to enjoy great food while keeping the economic cycle turning close to home!

VG Meats has everything you need

Whether you’re visiting our retail locations in Simcoe or Stoney Creek, or you prefer shopping online at, we’re truly grateful for your support of our family business. Thank you for shopping local on Food Day Canada and throughout the year — it means the world to Ontario food producers, and we know you’ll love everything on your plate!
