The culinary experience at the Edmonton Convention Centre reflects our commitment to local innovation.
When we give back, Edmonton grows.
45% of our food suppliers are local producers and growers, injecting over $750,000 back into the local economy. Partnering with local companies to source from farmers like Erdmann’s Gardens & Greenhouse, Forest Scene Farms, Meuwlys and more, we are committed to strengthening local food producers.
Our urban beekeeping program houses a beehive on our site and allows us to produce 45 pounds of our own honey each year.
Together, let’s eliminate food waste.
Food waste is a major issue in Canada with nearly 60% of food wasted or lost. Our team at the Edmonton Convention Centre is doing what we can to eliminate waste by using our culinary expertise to actively integrate what some call ‘ugly foods’ into our menus.
