Farm to Plate – virtual advocacy event
May 31 @ 8:00 am - June 1 @ 5:00 pm
The Canadian Produce Marketing Association (CPMA) and Canadian Horticultural Council (CHC) will hold a virtual format of their Farm to Plate advocacy event on May 31 and June 1, 2021. Members of the two organizations are invited to register for the event by May 26.
Farm to Plate is an annual event that gives produce industry members a chance to meet with Parliamentarians, Senators, and other key government officials, to discuss critical issues impacting the Canadian fresh fruit and vegetable sector.
This year’s edition of Farm to Plate will focus on how the federal government can support our industry now and ensure its success in a post-pandemic world. Topics of discussions will include establishing a financial protection mechanism, supporting industry’s sustainability efforts, improving access to labour, and much more.
