Expanding grain industy access to international markets
By Top Crop Manager
Apr. 14, 2015 - The federal government is investing $1.4 million under Growing Forward 2 for two projects being led by the Canada Grains Council (CGC) to help the grain industry demonstrate its compliance with global sustainability requirements and expand its access to international markets.
The CGC is receiving over $1 million to develop tools that will help grain growers demonstrate their crops are grown in a sustainable way.
An additional investment of over $325,000 will allow the CGC to collaborate with other stakeholders in the grains and oilseeds industry on common issues related to trade and market access in order to increase grain export opportunities for the sector.
