Save the date: Virtual Farm to Plate Event
The Canadian Produce Marketing Association (CPMA) and Canadian Horticultural Council (CHC) are planning the next virtual advocacy event for May 31 and June 1, 2021.
Farm to Plate 2021 will bring together industry participants from across the country to engage with Parliamentarians and officials about the issues that are important to the fresh produce sector.
Building on the success of the virtual Fall Harvest event last November, the virtual Farm to Plate event will offer all the elements attendees are accustomed to from in-person events, including issue overviews, team gatherings and meetings with key officials, while allowing a broader membership group to participate.
Please register for Farm to Plate 2021 to ensure the voice of the fresh produce industry is heard, and that fresh produce issues are understood and acted upon. Registration closes on May 26, 2021.
