What's New In Pork For Ontario?
Ontario Pork Recipes and Retailers
Ontario Pork Goes Mobile
Technology is always changing and companies are looking for new ways to engage consumers. Ontario Pork is no exception and is hoping that its new mobile recipe site mobilerecipe.ontariopork.com will make it that much easier for consumers to purchase and prepare pork. Mobile websites are growing in popularity, as they are a quick and easy way for users to gather and/or find information. Generally these sites have a simple design, and do not contain many images, which make downloading easier. With this in mind, Ontario Pork's searchable recipe website is now also accessible from your smartphone - no computer required. Users will have a convenient method to conduct a general recipe search, or find a specific recipe, at any time - whether commuting to/from work, at the gym or the grocery store.
