The Ontario Food Terminal has been at the forefront of Ontario’s “buy local” movement since 1954. It is a “stock market” of sorts between local producers and the myriad of restaurants, independent & chain supermarkets, farm gate markets, florists, garden centers, landscapers, convenience stores and institutions. According to its website, the terminal is the largest wholesale fruit and produce distribution center in Canada and the third largest in North America. In 2013, it moved over 5.5 million pounds of food per day. In an effort to improve both aesthetics and functionality, the facility required a glazing solution to protect people and produce, alike, from the elements when using a central aisle pick-up zone.
