A Muskoka business is getting provincial accolades for the fourth time.
Johnston’s Cranberry Marsh was recently picked for the provincial Agri-Food Innovation Excellence Award.
Economic Development Advisory with the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs Katherine Oosterbaan says Johnston’s has proven over the years that it is leading the way for innovation in the cranberry game.
Oosterbaan says this not only expands their business but brings more tourism traffic to Muskoka which benefits other businesses in the district.
Co-owner Wendy Hogarth says especially in the cranberry industry it takes a lot of work and creative thinking to stay ahead.
The award presentation was held at the Muskoka Lakes Municipal Office in Port Carling.
