The Conference Board’s Centre for Food in Canada (CFIC) invites you to join us at the 3rd Canadian Food Summit 2014: From Strategy to Action. This major, international event focuses on implementing the actions recommended in the Canadian Food Strategy. The emphasis will be on leveraging opportunities and finding workable solutions—constructive ways to make the most of our opportunities, resources and talent to achieve the great economic potential of the food sector and meet the full range of Canadians’ food needs.

Why a Canadian Food Strategy?

Food impacts Canadians in an extraordinary range of ways: it affects our lives, our health, our jobs and our economy.

There is a new urgency to safeguard and sustain the health and profitability of the producers, manufacturers, shippers, traders, distributors and retailers in Canada’s food system, who are pivotal to ensuring the quality, healthiness and safety of the food supply to Canadians. Appetites are growing for a national strategy for food—a grand vision—that connects the parts and the players in the food system and that can guide and stimulate efforts to change it.

The Centre for Food in Canada has responded to this need by developing a Canadian Food Strategy—a comprehensive, action-oriented framework that expresses a shared vision for the future of food in Canada and meets our country’s need for a coordinated, long-term strategy.
