Farm & Food Care Canada transitions
By Top Crop Manager
The Farm & Food Care Canada board of directors has evaluated its mission, vision and organizational structure and made the decision to transition to the Canadian Centre for Food Integrity (CCFI).
The CCFI, with its research, training and consumer support services, is well equipped to provide valuable expertise and support to the entire food system in order to build public trust and align resources.
The CCFI is funded by partners and individuals from across the food system and from across the country. The Farm & Food Care Canada board will serve as the transition board for the new CCFI until the new board and advisory council is in place in the next few months.
You can learn more and be part of the progress along with farm and food system leaders from coast to coast and across all sectors at the CCFI Public Trust Summit: “Tackling Transparency – the truth about trust.” Program highlights include the release of the 2017 public trust in food and farming research and a live millennial consumer panel.

Farm & Food Care Canada was created in 2010 as a charity with the mandate to build public trust in Canadian food and farming. The new Canadian Centre for Food Integrity was launched in 2016 as a program of Farm & Food Care Canada, and an affiliate of The Center for Food Integrity, created in the United States in 2007.
