The Savour Ottawa retail members must meet one of the following criteria:
1) A minimum of 10% of annual food purchases sourced from Savour Ottawa producers;
2) Minimum of $25,000 (or $250,000 if it’s a large business) purchased annually directly from Savour Ottawa producers; or
3) buy from a minimum of 10 (or 15) Savour Ottawa producer members.
Regardless of which of the above criteria the retailer meets, they must also purchase from a minimum of 5 Savour Ottawa producer members and show a commitment to working with the producers that can not necessarily supply product year round.
