More than half of Canada’s agri-food exports are destined for the U.S., but growing middle-class wealth around the world, as well as changing consumer preferences for everything from convenience foods to ethically sourced ingredients, are providing new markets for Canada’s agri-food companies. With the growing global population expected to increase food production by 70 percent by 2050, this is a prime time for all Canadian food companies to look at new opportunities.
This panel presentation, hosted by the Canadian Organic Trade Association (COTA) will help you explore these opportunities. In addition to covering pertinent sector topics, the panel will include a feature on organic foods, a rapidly growing industry that is valued at $4.7 billion annually and is outpacing other agri-market sectors with a threefold rate of growth between 2006 and 2015.
