Minister MacAulay announces support for Canadian beef export market

The Honourable Lawrence MacAulay, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, announced an investment of more than $6 million in two beef and cattle organizations through the AgriMarketing Program, an initiative under the Sustainable Canadian Agricultural Partnership.

The investment aims to drive the growth of Canada’s beef industry through promotional activities that increase awareness and demand for Canadian beef in existing and new markets.

Canada Beef is receiving up to $5,865,110 and the Canadian Cattle Association is receiving up to $453,364. The two projects incorporate promotional activities such as advertising campaigns, incoming and outgoing trade missions, technical training, and educational seminars.

Increasing trade in foreign markets will boost economic activity in Canada and positively impact farmers and businesses at all levels of the supply chain.
