Alberta modernizes export catalogue
By Top Crop manager
Since 2010, Alberta Agriculture, Forestry and Rural Economic Development (AFRED) has offered an Export Catalogue in both print and through digital download as a PDF. Now, AFRED has debuted a new iteration of the catalogue as an online-exclusive, interactive tool.
The catalogue will no longer be published in PDF of print. The new iteration features Alberta agriculture and agri-food products and services exported internationally, and is accessed by trade commissioners around the world, Alberta trade offices and international buyers.
Publishing the catalogue online was a collaborative project between AFRED’s Export Development Team and the Alberta.ca Team.
“Alberta’s agriculture equipment manufacturers, input suppliers, consultants and researchers have developed a reputation as innovative and knowledgeable product and service providers to the global marketplace,” said Stefanie Braz, international initiatives officer with AFRED, in a statement. “This catalogue connects potential buyers with Alberta product and service suppliers.”
Alberta agriculture and agri-food suppliers and processors can submit an application for review to list their products in the Export Catalogue. Products listed range from food and health products to agricultural products and services including equipment and supplies, animal feed, livestock, genetic material and fertilizers.
