Central Elgin, ON: For a limited time Great Lakes Farms' strawberry sauce will be available at Shaw's Ice Cream - a partnership with delicious results.

MaryAnne Van de Gevel of Great Lakes Farms met Kristine Hayes of Shaw's Ice Cream at a local food meeting over the winter months. The pair talked and decided it was important for local businesses to work together and cross promote.

"At Great Lakes we are trying to come up with ways that customers can enjoy our delicious fruit longer," states Van de Gevel. "The strawberry fruit sauce still has the delicious fresh taste of our strawberries but with a longer shelf life."

Hayes is "excited to be working with MaryAnne and her family at Great Lakes Farms. This partnership gives us an opportunity to provide our customers with local seasonal sundae sauces, and celebrate the wonderful foods grown in our community."

The strawberry sauce is being well received by customers as they enjoy their sundaes. Both women see this new partnership as a way to further enhance their businesses by promoting each other’s products in their retail locations.
