Curious Canadians wanting to learn more about how their food is made have three more opportunities available to them now at www.FarmFood360.ca. One of those tours is to the Alliston, Ontario potato farm of the Vander Zaag family and then shows how those potatoes are turned into potato chips.
“It’s wonderful to showcase the hard work and delight that comes from planting and harvesting a successful crop, and to know that so many Canadians will have a chance to take our tour,” says Kevin Brubacher, general manager of the Ontario Potato Board.
Using 360 cameras and virtual reality technology, the award-winning FarmFood360° website gives Canadians the chance to tour real, working farms and food processing plants, all without putting on boots or biosecurity clothing.
The tour was developed by Farm & Food Care Ontario (FFCO) in partnership with the Ontario Potato Board. The project was also funded, in part, through the AgriCompetitiveness program of the Canadian Agricultural Partnership, afederal, provincial, territorial initiative.
