Sask Wheat joins Cereals Canada
By Top Crop Manager
The Saskatchewan Wheat Development Commission (Sask Wheat) becomes the newest member of Cereals Canada, a national not-for-profit organization of partners from across the cereals value chain.
Sask Wheat joins other members such as the Alberta Wheat Commission, B.C. Grain Producers Association, Grain Farmers of Ontario and Atlantic Grains Council. A full list of current members can be found on Cereals Canada's website.
"Canadian agriculture is facing a rise in protectionism around the world. Saskatchewan Wheat Development Commission's membership in Cereals Canada makes the value chain stronger and better able to manage the head winds we face today," said Cam Dahl, president of Cereals Canada, in a statement.
“There are several key issues across the world that will be impacting wheat markets, from NAFTA, to CPTPP to the country of origin labelling requirements in Italy. We will combine our resources on these and other issues for Saskatchewan’s wheat farmers," said Laura Reiter, Sask Wheat chair, in a statement.
