Eat Drink Local and Buy BC logos

Buy BC: EAT DRINK LOCAL is a month-long annual campaign that encourages restaurants across the province to celebrate local food and beverage through B.C. inspired menus, dishes and drinks.

Whether your menu already includes B.C. food, or if you’re just starting to introduce local ingredients, this promotion is for you! Participation is free!

Details on the 2022 campaign will be coming soon. In the meantime, feel free to reach out to us following the steps below.
