The Quinte Economic Development Commission (QEDC) is pleased to announce the official launch of the “Proudly Made in Bay of Quinte Region” campaign to promote products made in the region.

“The ‘Proudly Made in Bay of Quinte Region’ campaign is a direct action item identified in the Quinte Economic Development Commission’s last Manufacturing Labour Market Study. Local industry strongly indicated in the report that there is a need to promote and raise awareness as to the products and capabilities of Bay of Quinte region manufacturers.” Noted Rene Veillette Chair of the Quinte Manufacturers Association

The marketing campaign includes social media promotion and in-store promotional materials.

The campaign will launch initially with a pilot program in two local stores; Smylie’s Your Independent Grocer in Quinte West & Dewe’s Your Independent Grocer in Belleville. Locally manufactured products can be identified in store through shelf hanger signage with the ‘Proudly Made in Bay of Quinte Region’ logo. More stores and events promoting locally made products will be announced in future.

“Manufacturers in this region bring tremendous value to our economy and produce a range of quality products including some that are available to local consumers.   We can support our friends, family and neighbours that are employed in the manufacturing sector when we choose to purchase those locally made products.” Says Chris King, CEO of the Quinte Economic Development Commission.

For more information on manufacturing in Bay of Quinte region or the ‘Proudly Made in Bay of Quinte’ campaign, please contact the Quinte Economic Development Commission.
