About us

Ontario’s artisan Food and Beverage (FAB) Region is a unique economic development partnership between the counties of Hastings, Prince Edward, Lennox & Addington and the Frontenac Community Futures Development Corporation with a goal of helping entrepreneurs ‘live their dream’ of operating an artisanal food and beverage business.

Our FAB Region is strategically located in the middle of what many call the golden triangle of Toronto, Ottawa, and Montreal and close to the 1000 Islands Bridge to the USA, making it ideal for artisanal entrepreneurs to ship their goods to major centres in North America.

Our partnership began with the launch of an Invest In Cheese initiative in 2009 and it proved to be so successful that we are strengthening our partnership to establish our area as Ontario’s premier Food and Beverage (FAB) Region. We are here to help you turn your dream into reality.

This website is our online hub and we will be adding more information to this site as we move forward.
