THE PROVISIONS FOOD COMPANY STORY

Fox200Provisions Food Company, creators of handmade, all natural foodstuffs, is an excited team of makers led by Lori McDonald. Now hailing from Niagara, Lori was raised in Harrow, Ontario, an area also known for its rich agricultural traditions. Like many teenagers who grew up in Southern Ontario, Lori picked orchard tender fruits in season which established an appreciation for local produce.

A burgeoning wine industry has spawned many award winning restaurants with acclaimed chefs. But what about the wineries that do not have their own restaurants? Lori was inspired to provide accompanying foodstuffs to supplement all that Niagara wines have to offer. Savoury and sweet shortbreads to provide a toothsome pairing for big reds and refreshing whites, condiments to enhance cheese pairings to wines and confections to top off any picnic or road trip.

The Provisions team is passionate about bringing people together through food and sharing their love of delicious handmade foodstuffs.

culinary scene, acquiring a discerning palette along the way. She has an appreciation for the science behind agricultural practices and cooking. Lori also has the uncanny ability for attracting talented, food-obsessed individuals that share her passion for making Provisions great.
