November 3, 2022 By Bakers Journal
Ottawa – The Grain Growers of Canada welcomed the Saskatchewan Wheat Development Commission to its membership.
Established in 2013, Sask Wheat provides leadership in identifying and supporting research, market development, and advocacy to maximize profitable and sustainable wheat production for Saskatchewan farmers.
“Joining GGC reinforces our commitment to working with key industry stakeholders to develop a focused approach to national priorities and ensure the views of Saskatchewan growers are heard in Ottawa,” said Sask Wheat chair Brett Halstead. “By working together, we can help deliver the conditions that Canada’s hard-working grain farmers need to continue the growth of our sector and protect the economic viability of the family farm.”
Earlier this year, GGC announced their partnership with Sask Wheat on their ‘Road to 2050’ climate solutions initiative. GGC and Sask Wheat are jointly focused on improving on-farm sustainability and the competitiveness of Canadian agriculture on both the domestic and international front.
The GGC said in a news release they are proud to add Sask Wheat’s perspective to their membership and look forward to advocating on behalf of their 24,000 farmer members.
“Sask Wheat is a provincial leader in research and market development who has strengthened their province’s competitive advantage through prioritizing their member’s interests,” said GGC Chair Andre Harpe. “Adding their voice to the table means that we are an even stronger advocate for grain farmers.”
With this announcement, GGC now represents approximately 90,000 grain farmers across the country through their membership.
