Local Food Plus (LFP) is a Canadian non-profit organization that brings farmers and consumers together to build regional food economies. LFP certifies[clarification needed] farmers and processors in Ontario, Atlantic Canada, British Columbia and the Canadian Prairies who use sustainable practices, and helps connect farmers and buyers, in part through a "Buy to Vote" campaign, based on the notion of voting with one's money.

This certification which permits a 'best practice' approach, meaning that each of the points that LFP aims to integrate is not as fully considered as say organic certification specifically, but because it considers a wide range of 'ethical' points, the consumer may be able to purchase a well-rounded and 'morally' sound item if it bears the LFP label.[1]
