Grape Growers of Ontario is the official organization that represents over 500 grape growers of 17,000 acres of vineyards in Ontario, Canada who produce grapes for processing.
Grape Growers of Ontario provides a variety of benefits and services to our members. We serve as the voice of our membership and an information resource for our growers, the general public, media, and our winery partners on viticulture and the relevant grape and wine issues affecting our industry.
Grape Growers of Ontario negotiates prices for all grapes sold to processors. While growers contract their grape sales directly with processors, prices must be no less than the minimum set through negotiations between the Grape Growers of Ontario and Ontario's grape processors.
About 95% of our grape production goes into commercial winemaking, and about 5% is used by manufacturers for juice, jams and other grape products. Our members also supply grapes to the home winemaking market.

Throughout the history of Vineland Growers' Co-operative, confidence and integrity has been key works in the philosophy of operations. This undoubtedly accounts for the fact that at the present time the company is serving the majority of progressive growers throughout the region and beyond, with more than 300 members today. To provide the service to the membership and customers, there are currently 28 dedicated full time employees, many who have been with the Co-operative in excess of 20 years and a few with more than 30 years of service. During the harvest season the number of employees grows to 60 plus, with the addition of seasonal workers.
Over the past 100 years of continuous operation, there have been many issues and challenges, good years and some not so good, but through the Co-operative spirit of the members and employees, Vineland Growers Co-operative Limited has overcome them. The Co-operative has always strived to be at the leader in the industry through the dedication of its members and will continue to make their mark into the next century.
