This month will mark an exciting phase of the CPSR Market Development in Colombia project when a pilot program focusing on in-market technical baking training kicks off in Bogotá, Colombia. The training sessions will consist of a series of one- and two-day workshops with six of Colombia’s biggest customers for Canadian wheat and will be delivered by a team from Cigi, led by technical specialist Yulia Borsuk.
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.
Customers in 17 countries will meet with representatives from Canada’s grain value chain to learn about the quality and end-use characteristics of the 2018 Canadian wheat crop during a series of new crop missions beginning November 12.
Cereals Canada applauds the Royal Assent of Bill C-79, the legislation that provides for the ratification of the Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP). The CPTPP will bring more stability, growth and prosperity to Canada.
