Agriculture Canada is looking to buttress provincial and food commodity efforts with its own campaign to ‘Buy Canadian.’ It has published a request for proposal for marketing firms to help it launch a social marketing campaign to build public trust in the food system and to better connect consumers with agriculture and food.

The five-year, $25 million ad campaign is expected to launch this summer, reminding consumers of how Canadian farms operate and about stringent food standards. The timing follows a revamp of Canada’s Food Guide and a shift in consumer eating habits towards more plant-based meals.
