Smartphone app maps B.C. food producers

NANAIMO – Smartphone app guides tourists to local meat and poultry producers and sellers.

A new smartphone app from the B.C. Association of Abattoirs sniffs out local meat and poultry producers and sellers.

The B.C. Meats for B.C. Markets phone app helps residents and tourists find farms, stores and restaurants that produce, stock or serve B.C. meats.

The app will be released in March.

The project is part of the B.C. Government’s Agrifoods Strategy – part of the B.C. Jobs Plan – to drive agrifoods sector growth into a $14-billion annual industry by 2017.
