October 29, 2020 — FHCP was pleased to be part of a coalition of partners advancing a dialogue on a National Index on Agri-Food Performance, a validated benchmark of environmental and other indicators that would be used by the agri-food sector and stakeholders to enable sector competitiveness, demonstrate societal benefits and improve policy.
"This report is a key reminder of the continued importance of environmental considerations within Canada’s larger growth agenda for the agri-sector,” explains FHCP CEO, Michael Graydon. “Canadian food production remains strong from an environmental perspective but this report confirms that successes must be measured and shown effective for us to effectively compete on a world stage. Combining these environmental efforts with steps to develop and diversify markets, investing in innovation and developing a modern regulatory and infrastructure network are critical to Canada fully achieving its stated economic goals.”
