Raising Our Voice in Manitoba
Your Province, Your Business, Your Future

As Manitoba gets ready to head to the polls on Sept. 10, let’s make sure all candidates know that the province’s $2.6- billion, 45,000-employee foodservice industry is too important to ignore!

Together we can make a difference!
