New Agriculture Museum exhibit focuses on keeping food fresh longer

When you discover your bread is mouldy or that leftover supper was kept in the fridge too long, analyzing the less-than-appealing foods likely isn't your first move, but a new exhibit at the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum is taking a closer look.

It's certainly not a popular technique today, but burying food was considered one of the main ways to preserve food years ago.

Kerry-Leigh Burchill is the director general of the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum.

"[We've] seen a resurgence of that desire — not only from our visitors, but [the] public in general — to be very much more connected with their food and how it's being preserved," she told CFRA.

The exhibition will call the museum home for five years.
