What We have been Working on for You: OFVGA Activities Update February 2020
What We're Working on For You
This monthly newsletter is to keep you, our members, informed about what the key issues and files are that OFVGA is currently tackling on behalf of growers.
Field to Plate – national political outreach day
OFVGA board and staff representatives will be heading to Ottawa in late February for the Field to Plate event being hosted by the Canadian Horticultural Council and Canadian Produce Marketing Association. The outreach day with federal politicians, political staff and bureaucrats will see the national groups focus on crop protection, financial protection for growers and sustainability, which includes food waste, economic sustainability and plastic waste.
OFVGA will be representing the interests of Ontario growers on those issues, as well as labour, during some Ontario-specific meetings that will take place that day as well.
