Parliamentary Secretary Drouin announces new funding to help promote Canadian agri-food products around the world

Brossard, Quebec 

Canada is one of the world's largest food exporters, and the success of the Canadian agriculture sector depends heavily on our ability to export our high-quality products to other countries.

To support Canadian agri-food companies in reaching these markets, today, Francis Drouin, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, announced up to $5.5 million over 3 years to Group Export Agri-Food Québec-Canada through the AgriMarketing Program, an initiative under the Sustainable Canadian Agricultural Partnership.

This investment will allow Group Export to provide support to companies entering a foreign market for the first time as well as those currently trading in foreign markets. The objectives of the project activities are to enable Canadian companies to promote their agri-food products abroad, to secure concrete sales and contracts in their target markets, and to increase the value of international agri-food exports in all categories of agri-food products.

Group Export's project activities include facilitating business meetings, supporting attendance at trade shows, providing technical training, and organizing trade missions.
