Toronto Based Restaurants’ Motivation for Using Locally Sourced Food

About the Project

The researchers conducted interviews with the manager or chef of 50 Toronto based restaurants actively using locally sourced food. The study was performed from September-December 2014, and was completed through both face to face and telephone interviews. Participants were asked a series of questions surrounding their motivations for using local food products, as well as any challenges or barriers of doing so.
