From a news release
Ontario Greenhouse Vegetable Growers (OGVG)launched their annual winter cucumber program “Always in Season” on Feb. 1.
This program signifies the ramp up of production for all varieties of Ontario greenhouse grown seedless cucumbers and informs Ontario consumers of their availability during the cold winter months.
“Consumers can find fresh, locally grown Ontario greenhouse cucumbers in grocery stores throughout Ontario,” said OGVG General Manager, Rick Seguin. “There’s no need to wait until summer to enjoy locally grown cucumbers.”
The growing demand for Ontario greenhouse seedless cucumbers is motivated by consumers’ healthy eating choices. Our growers have increased production to ensure the supply is abundant for Ontario consumers and retailers.
This program is supported by key Canadian retailers. This year’s campaign includes new recipe ideas, retailer flyer ads indicating product of Canada and a media campaign designed to raise awareness of availability of locally grown greenhouse seedless cucumbers.
