HENSALL Hensall Co-op Chief Executive Officer Brad Chandler appeared before the International Trade Committee on Monday February 22nd to provide our perspective on Bill C18, “An Act to implement the Agreement on Trade Continuity between Canada and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland”.

 

The UK and Northern Ireland are critical markets for Hensall Co-op and Brad outlined the importance of free trade with them. The plant protein market is forecast to grow by a factor of 18 times by 2030 and it is critical that we are not faced with tariffs or quotas as this would substantially reduce growth opportunities for Canadian farmers. 

 

We are grateful to Huron-Bruce Member of Parliament Ben Lobb who is on the committee. Mr. Lobb asked several questions to reinforce the key issues. This was extremely important given some members of the committee are not very familiar with agriculture.

 

We are pleased to have been given the opportunity to stand for Canadian farmers at the House of Commons and we will continue to do so whenever and wherever we can.
