Who We Are


Ontario Greenhouse Vegetable Growers (OGVG) is a not-for-profit organization, formed in 1967, representing approximately 170 members who grow greenhouse tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers on over 3800 acres in Ontario, Canada. Our growers span from Windsor to Niagara and as far north as Ottawa.

OGVG is regulated under the Farm Products Marketing Act (FPMA). Under Regulation 417 of this Act, OGVG is responsible for licensing all growers, packers and marketers of Ontario greenhouse tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers. As a member-based organization, a Board of Directors and committees have been put in place to aid in the decision making process and to ensure the standards of the sector. Areas of focus include research, food safety, energy, environment, market performance and marketing. The Board also annually reviews, amends as appropriate, and approves the General Regulations for OGVG.

In addition, OGVG works hard to promote and connect its growers with government agencies, consumers, retailers and foodservice operators across North America through various government lobbing events, research, marketing initiatives, trade shows and community activities. As a whole, OGVG strives to support the Ontario greenhouse vegetable sector and its growers, however possible, to ensure success for today, sustainability for tomorrow, and fresh, nutritious, quality produce for all!
