Que. and Ont. food and beverage processing industries team up for growth
From Food In Canada
Food and Beverage Ontario (FBO) and Conseil de la transformation alimentaire du Quebec (CTAQ) have signed an agreement to team up in an effort to strengthen food and beverage processor representation nationally and provincially, as well as raise the profile of Canada’s processing industry overall.
The agreement between FBO and CTAQ will pursue strategic partnerships and collaboration with stakeholders to support a competitive position for the food and beverage processing industry. It also aims to increase the profile of the food and beverage processing industry with governments, industry stakeholders and Canadians; identify and work with partners on the development of programs that will increase industry innovation, productivity and competitiveness; and establish specific job and revenue targets for the industry collaboratively with governments.
Immediate priorities for FBO and CTAQ include an analysis of industry policy and regulatory issues, and launching of a communications campaign focused on the federal government. Raising the profile of the sector and its impact on the economy is also a high priority.
