Local Agriculture

Canada's Produce Place

n 2004, Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada established a Horticulture Value Chain Roundtable (HVCRT). Participants included industry members from across the supply chain and government officials. One of the recent projects initiated by this group was directed at improving information sharing between grower/packer/shippers and buyers of local fresh produce in order to increase retail presence of domestic product and improve supply chain efficiency.
