Presented in collaboration with BC Food and Beverage,
Good to Grow’s 4th annual From The Ground Up Trade Show on May 26, 2022, was a fantastic success. We’re already looking forward to the 2023 trade show in Vancouver. Stay posted for next year’s event date!

If you are a buyer for retail, food service, or institutional food service; a distributor, broker, or media focused on all things food, bev, and local; a chef or restauranteur focusing on B.C. local and food security; or an organization looking to source local food and sustainable options for your business and employees—we want to see you at the trade show!

We created this 100% B.C. local industry-only event to connect you with talented local food and beverage processors and provide you the opportunity to be one of the first to see new and emerging B.C. food and beverage brands ready to hit the market.

“The show was definitely worthwhile. We came away with numerous ideas, better
educated, and motivated to build our local offerings in the campuses we operate. I
believe we have connected with over a dozen vendors from the show. We’re looking
forward to next year’s bigger and better show.”

“From The Ground Up was filled with a comprehensive and valuable variety of local vendors for future business partnership consideration for Fresh Prep, many of which we may not have made contact with without the From The Ground Up Trade Show. We walked away with several new contacts and look forward to working with them in the future.”

“I have been to From The Ground Up the last 3 years and every year it gets better! It is so inspiring to see local vendors grow their businesses and create connections. At Stong’s, we are proud to be a true independent grocer and partner with these great local businesses.”

“What an incredible show! The energy and innovation from all the local companies was fabulous. We left the show with our hearts, minds, and stomach full of flavour, energy and excitement. Simon Fraser Uni can’t wait to bring this energy to our campuses.”
