“When BC is in your glass, or on your plate at a restaurant, we know it simply tastes better and we encourage everyone to go out and see for themselves, ”says Ian Tostenson, president and CEO of the BC Restaurant and Foodservices Association (BCRFA) who have partnered with the Ministry of Agriculture to create Buy BC. “It’s about celebrating the diversity of BC offerings at different price points and different styles.”
