“Davison brings a deep background in the industry, as well as a great passion for and commitment to the future growth of the sector,” says Jennifer Marchand, chair of the CCC board of directors. “We are delighted to have him lead the CCC and continue to build on the strength of our partnership across the canola value chain.”
