Purchasing Standards

Through our selection of products, Dandelion Foods strives to enrich the health and well-being of our customers, as well as the economic health of our community. We promote a sustainable local food system, and we offer products that both meet the needs and reflect the values of our community. We prioritize the following products:

  • High-quality natural foods
  • Local products. When local sources are not available, we give preference to regional, domestic, and fairly traded international products.
    • we define local as Lanark, Leeds and Grenville, Frontenac and Renfrew counties and the greater Ottawa area, or having value added in those regions;
  • Organic products
  • Products causing minimal environmental impacts
  • Non-GMO (genetically modified organism) products
  • Items requested by our customers and products that meet unique needs in our community
