Pork has a Great Deal Going for it in 2016
The pork sector goes in to 2016 on very solid footing with regard to both supply and demand from a retailer/foodservice perspective.  In addition, the product is very cost/price  competitive with regard to the two main competing meats, beef and chicken and it has performed very well from a margin perspective for merchandisers.

Slow Cooker Peameal and Potato Chowder
This soup recipe is a serious ‘Canuck’ specialty featuring loads of local peameal (Canadian) bacon, so you know it’s sure to satisfy the lumberjack in your life. At the same time it is beautifully silky and perfect to serve to a crowd, or to bring to your next pot-luck. To simplify things this recipe calls for your slow cooker instead of the usual stove top preparation. Just prep and load in the ingredients in the morning, and you have a beautiful hot fresh soup by dinner time.

Farmer Profile: John Van Engelen
Farming and technology has certainly changed and improved over the years. Nowhere is this more evident than in pork production. More than 60 years after his parents came to Canada from Holland and started a modest dairy farm where rudimentary tools and clunky machinery were part of the daily grind, John Van Engelen marvels at the impact technology has had on his farming operations.

For Chris Corrigan, there’s much more to offering great tasting food at his restaurant than simply following a recipe. It’s about authenticity. Chris understands the value of combining his passion for the craft of southern barbecue with sourcing as many of his ingredients as locally as possible.
