Keynote: REGULATION IN CANADA

Evaluating the Canadian Regulatory Environment and its Impact on Competitiveness and Opportunity

Regulatory policies have a measurable impact on Canada’s food production. Food producers and manufacturers compete globally, so it’s imperative that the regulatory conditions support our food and beverage sector. Assess the state of the industry, and discover how food processors can:

  • Leverage current Canadian regulations to develop their markets at home and abroad
  • Influence legislation and regulation to promote outcome-based regulation.
  • Create the innovative food products that will fuel Canada’s agribusiness sector.

Gain a global competitive edge by working within the Canadian regulatory environment.
