2008 Agri-Food Innovation Excellence Awards
In June 2009, the Ministry of Agriculture Food & Rural Affairs announced the recipients of the 2008 Agri-Food Innovation Excellence Awards. As a proud member of the Quinte Organic Farmers’ Cooperative, Thyme Again Gardens shared in the excitement of being recognized as Regional Award Winner. In a ceremony hosted by OMAFRA Minister Leona Dombrowsky, our Co-op was one of 55 winners of the 2008 Premier’s, Minister’s and regional awards. With more than 180 applicants competing for the coveted awards, we are proud to be a part of this important celebration. In the words of the Minister, “the ideas that spring forth as a result of agri-food related innovations will not only ensure the ongoing vitality of our agri-food industry, but also leave a legacy for generations to come — some may even change the face of the agri-food sector.” Congratulations to all of our fellow winners!
