What is the Tofino Ucluelet Culinary Guild?

We are a community food sourcing organization that operates as a social enterprise; bringing high quality, locally grown products to the communities of Tofino and Ucluelet. We are driven to help west coast restaurants, families, and business access healthy food directly from the people who farm, fish and forage the bounty of ingredients available on Vancouver Island. Through group buying and shipping opportunities we make food more affordable for our members, and for small local food producers we create a strong market with established distribution.

Our members include restaurants, resorts, grocers, businesses, farms, food producers and families.
