Eastern Ontario Agri-Food Network / Réseau agroalimentaire de l'Est ontarien

Affiliated Partners

The Eastern Ontario Agri-Food Network collaborates extensively with many affiliated partners in the regional agri-food economy.

Such partners are other organizations and associations with whom the EOAN has a peer-to-peer membership or relationship. We share training events, collaborate on projects, perform joint promotions, offer joint services, and so on.

The EOAN encourages its members to directly join these organizations as a peer-to-peer affiliation does not provide EOAN members with memberships in these organizations.
