Feds invest in new market opportunities for special crops
May 13, 2014 - The federal government is investing $230,000 to the Canadian Special Crops Association (CSCA) to increase export sales of special crops in markets abroad and increase the competitiveness of the mustard and sunflower seed industries.
The investment is intended to help the CSCA promote Canadian pulses and special crops on trade missions and at international trade shows, and advocate for favourable policies that will position Canada as a world leader and supplier of choice.
The CSCA will also administer two projects led by the Saskatchewan Mustard Development Commission and the National Sunflower Association of Canada to help increase global demand for mustard and sunflower seeds by improving variety options and highlighting their health and nutritional properties.
