Farm groups in Saskatchewan are vowing to participate in the Trudeau government’s plan to develop a national food policy and farmers see it as an important development tool.
The federal government will launch an on-line survey and hold a 2-day food summit in Ottawa in late June to develop a national food policy.
APAS president Todd Lewis says he will get involved.
“It’s good to see it,” said Lewis. “It all kind of ties in with the federal government’s recognition that agriculture is important. it’s big part of the future of this country.”
The Trudeau government says key areas include access to affordable food, improving food safety, protecting the environment and expanding production.
