When you continue to buy locally made products, you’re sharing your awareness of our manufacturers’ contributions and helping advocate for policies that help Bay of Quinte manufacturers.
Manufacturing consistently brings new money into the region, which is then circulated to other sectors like retail, transportation, construction, service, and ICT, helping create better lifestyles and opportunities for all residents by:
• Offering direct, high quality, high paying jobs;
• Creating more full time jobs and entrepreneurial opportunities;
• Motivating our youth to stay close to home and take world-class training at Loyalist College;
• Provides a source of pride for our friends, family & neighbours
• Allowing the community to offer more leisure and recreation programs.
In the meantime – here are just some of the products produced with pride here in the region (which you can buy at places like Dewe’s, and Smiley’s Independent Grocer) and continue to contribute to Quinte’s renowned prosperity and high-quality living.
