Good Food Revolution is Canada’s good food and wine news site.

Based in Toronto, GFR is published by Good Food Media, a company with a mandate to educate the public about artisanal food, wine, beer and spirits.

Good Food Revolution is supported financially by a community of sponsors called ‘Good Food Fighters‘: businesses and organisations that support the enjoyment of good food and wine and the pleasures of the table, excellence in the hospitality industry, accountability in the food system and the right of all people to have access to good, healthy food.

Good Food Revolution is produced and edited weekly by Jamie Drummond and Malcolm Jolley. To find out more, contact us directly by clicking here.
