CCA participates in Committee’s study on beef processing capacity
The House of Commons Standing Committee on Agriculture and Agri-Food (the Committee) has been studying the country’s agricultural processing capacity and last week, CCA submitted a brief to share their views and recommendations on how to strengthen the national beef processing sector. Sufficient processing capacity is directly tied to producer income and the industry’s ability to contribute to economic growth and recovery. As this issue is a priority for CCA, we were pleased to see the Committee’s review of the subject and anticipate that CCA’s recommendations will be useful to MPs as they finalize the study and the Committee Report.
Other witnesses for this important study have included the Beef Farmers of Ontario, Beouf Quebec, among others across the commodity spectrum and supply chain. For more information on CCA’s policy position and processing capacity advocacy contact Brady Stadnicki or Fawn Jackson.
