The Canadian Food Exporters Association has received a $2.1 million investment to help it open new export market opportunities for small- and medium-size processors
Toronto – Canadian food processing companies have an added bit of help accessing new international markets with a recent federal investment.
Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada has invested more than $2.1 million in the Canadian Food Exporters Association (CFEA).
The investment will enable the CFEA to attend international food trade shows, lead outgoing missions in key markets such as Asia, and organize in-store food promotions in the Middle East.
The goal is to grow the number of small- to medium-size food, beverage and ingredient companies that export their products, and in doing so increase export sales for Canada’s agri-food sector.
Founded in September 1996, the CFEA is a voluntary, non-profit industry association. It was founded by 14 companies that felt the need for a resource focused on the enhancement of export efforts in the food and beverage industry, particularly on the part of small- to medium-size enterprises.
