Saskatchewan resources shouldn’t be forgotten, says food expert

A Canadian food expert says Saskatchewan has the commodities the world needs.

While in Saskatoon for the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities (SARM) annual convention, Sylvain Charlebois — professor in food distribution and policy at Dalhousie University’s Agri-Food Analytics Lab — spoke with Gormley on Tuesday morning.

Charlebois said people are starting to become more knowledgeable about food processes, and a greater awareness of the moving parts affecting what people eat is being realized.

However, Charlebois said he thinks the significant role Saskatchewan plays globally when it comes to food security is not being very well-recognized in Central Canada.
