10 Restaurants Across Canada Serving Delicious Pineapple Offerings

Bringing takeout lovers back to the flavours of summer, on Wednesday, November 17th, Canada Takeout is celebrating National Pineapple Day; brought to you by the Terroir Symposium.

An annual hospitality industry conference, this year’s symposium invites virtual attendees to observe inspiring industry leaders, workshops, chef demonstrations, mentor sessions; all in support of Canada’s foodservice and hospitality industry.

Why the pineapple? According to Terroir, both the industry and the pineapple have moments in their history of being problematic then bright and joyful, making the pineapple a representative symbol for overcoming challenges with education, resilience, innovation and creativity.
