Cereals Canada

There is a federal election coming this October.  Members of Parliament and candidates are canvassing their constituents at barbeques, golf tournaments and eventually all-candidate debates.  Now is the time for farmers to push for policies that will allow agriculture to deliver economic growth.

Over the past months, the Boards of the Canadian International Grains Institute (Cigi) and Cereals Canada have reviewed the benefits and synergies that would arise from amalgamating the organizations under the governance of a single Board of Directors and unified management team.

The world has become protectionist.  There is, justifiably, much focus on issues with China.  But it is not just China.  Canadian agriculture commodities are blocked in India, Italy, Saudi Arabia, and Vietnam and face issues in key markets like Peru.  Countries are turning inward, finding new ways to block trade.  How do we protect our trading relationships when the rules of trade have been thrown out the window?

I was on a speaker’s panel a few weeks back with a farmer who said he never wanted to hear the word sustainability again.  I understand the sentiment but we, as an industry, are going to be hearing that word more and more from customers and consumers around the world.

Canadians and Italians like each other.  Italian culture has formed a deep part of the Canadian fabric and Canadians buy hundreds of millions of dollars of goods from Italy every year.
