#BCBuyLocal Week - November 30 to December 6

 At Nuba we pride ourselves on using local ingredients whenever possible, and you can see a partial list of the local suppliers we use here. Supporting local suppliers allows us to give you the highest quality food at the best value possible while supporting the local economy.   From November 30 to December 6 Nuba will be taking part in the BC Buy Local campaign, to celebrate local business and promote the contributions that BC businesses make to our economy and our communities. The goal of the campaign is to illuminate the local market, and make BC-based businesses, products, food, and wines more visible to you.   Some quick facts for you from www.bcbuylocal.com  

Local businesses enhance our community, connect and support us socially, and enhance wealth and employment by circulating dollars many times between businesses. Research shows that BC local businesses create more than double the economic impact of their chain competitors. They re-circulate 2.6 times more revenue in the local economy as chains:  

    Local retailers re-circulate 45% compared to 17% for chains Local restaurants re-circulate 65% compared to 30% for chains Local suppliers (ex. office supplies) re-circulate 33% compared to 19% for chains

  For every $100 spent with a BC local business, $46 is re-circulated back into our BC economy (vs $18 for multi nationals). This is because locally owned businesses circulate more dollars in the community compared to multinational organizations:  

    Local business owners live and provide jobs in your community. Local businesses provide more support for local events, sports teams and charities. Local businesses are more likely to buy local services and can stock local products.

  Spending with a local business has ripple effects that contribute to the growth and health of the communities in our province.
