Farmers union questions province’s deal with Sodexo

The National Farmers Union in New Brunswick questions how the province signing a ten-year contract with Sodexo will support local farmers and food.  The government has a goal of 30% of foods being local in schools, hospitals and beyond.  Union President Ted Wiggans says the move flies in the face of the Local Food and Beverages Strategy, as Sodexo and other big companies aren’t likely to work with local farmers.
