Nova Scotia’s best protein bar and arriela bareroles are getting a facelift, according to the province’s food and beverage agency.
Nova Scotia’s food, beverage and tourism departments have partnered with the province to create Nova Scotia Pure Food and Beverage, which is currently being launched in Nova Scotian restaurants and grocery stores.
The new products are intended to provide a more nutritious and delicious food, said Anne-Marie Fauci, the director of food and beverages for the Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness.
They include the new Nova Scotia Original, Nova Scotia Barley and Nova Scotia Premium Grain Barley, as well as Nova Scotia Pinnacle Barley.
Nina Scotia Paddy’s Barley is the new name of the Nova Scotians Paddy-style barley, which was launched in September.
The province has partnered with NAB in an effort to make Nova Scotia the premier province for fresh and healthy food.NAB, an independent, not-for-profit organization, supports food businesses across the province.
It is also the official sponsor of the provincial game hockey tournament, which begins later this month in Halifax.
In a statement, the department said it has partnered to offer “premium-grade quality food, drink and beverages” to Nova Scotias residents.
“This will be the province that Nova Scotia fans and local communities will love, Fauces said in a statement.”
It’s the first time we’ve ever had a Nova Scotiac brand come to Halifax.
“The province also announced last month that it has launched a $5-million program that will help boost the local food economy by supporting more local food producers.”
There’s nothing like having the opportunity to work with Nab to create a better Nova Scotia, Faus said.
“We’re just really proud to be in the business of supporting food in Nova, not only for Nova Scotiaers but across the country,” she added.
Fauci said she and her team are hoping to launch other Nova Scotia products in the coming months.
“The food that we are making in Nova has been going strong for years and it’s really exciting to be able to continue to support it,” she said.
