Island Good at the Summit!
November 2022 / By: Diana
Island Good was an idea that sparked at the Vancouver Island Economic Alliance (VIEA) Summit in 2015. In 2018 the brand was launched at the Summit and ever since VIEA has been infusing more Island Good into this annual conference. Here is the rundown of Island Good at the 2022 Summit that happened last week!
Gift Boxes Launched!
Island Good is now available to make this holiday seasons’ gift giving easy and local. Check out our two boxes here. Next one launches this month with a holiday focus.
On the Menu
This year nearly 70% of the food served was Island Good or locally produced. The 550+ attendees raved about the food. Big thanks to the Chef and his team for being creative and willing to build an Island Good menu for the event.

At the Trade Show
With thanks to our friends at UpLift Destination Marketing Services (‘Uplift’) we were able to have a showcase of Island Good products on display, as well as talk directly to Economic Development Corporations from around the region to gain more support for the brand.
