Hamilton, Ont. – John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport is proud to welcome The Farm Network as its newest commercial partner.
Locally owned, The Farm Network, offers premium small farm and artisan products from across Ontario and parts of Canada. Located post-security at Hamilton International, The Farm Network will offer passengers a unique selection of domestic, gourmet gift items and tasty snacks.
“We are excited to offer passengers enhanced concession offerings through our partnership with The Farm Network,” said Lauren Yaksich, Manager, Marketing and Communications, John C. Munro Hamilton International Airport. “Tying a local company into our operations is a benefit for both the Airport and community; The Farm Network will complement the current food and beverage offerings at the Airport and enhance our ‘sense of place’ theme, which links the Airport to its local surroundings.”

Partners like the Hamilton International Airport provide the opportunity to develop a convenient location to showcase the quality and diversity of local, and domestic items. The company will build on the ‘eat local’ philosophy by providing the opportunity for consumers to eat Canadian.”

About The Farm Network
The Farm Network will connect all Canadians to the rich and diverse, gourmet products made by small farm and artisan producers from across the country. There is superior quality in much of Canadian agriculture and independent production, but Canadian consumers have access to only a limited range of goods made by these initiatives. The Farm Network will be the premiere source for the best that Canadian producers have to offer. www.thefarmnetwork.ca
