There is a consensus that we should buy local when possible. This is not a new idea but it has become more significant since the beginning of this pandemic. This paradigm is a key aspect of the new economic that’s shaping up.
When you buy local, you’re supporting local businesses. You build stronger relationships with the community and contribute to improving the quality of the environment and our health. When you buy local, you’re aiding local talent and discovering unique colours and tastes from the regions you go through.
For a second year, we want to showcase the hidden treasures of Québec. Throughout the summer, #RCGTsurLaRoute will broadcast interviews with local businesses on our social media. Join us in promoting local businesses by sharing your finds using the hashtag #AchatLocal or #BuyLocal.
Throughout the summer, meet local businesses!
