If you think Food & Consumer Products of Canada (FCPC) isn't relevant to your business, we invite you to think again. Better still, read what your peers have to say:
“To those considering an FCPC membership… I have been directly involved with the FCPC in sub-committee work, as well as its board of directors for a number of years, and have been consistently impressed with the vigour in which our industry is represented with our trading partners, and at all levels of government as well as their agencies. Regardless of your size of business, the FCPC provide access to important industry/global benchmark studies, low cost opportunities to develop members of your team, and the outstanding value of networking with some of the industry’s most experienced, and knowledgeable leaders.

“For Dr. Oetker Canada, a medium sized family owned food company, FCPC is a most valuable resource in several regards. We gain lots of business intelligence at the time it’s happening through FCPC. We, ourselves would not be able to be on top of all the files the team at FCPC monitors. FCPC represents industry interest towards other stakeholders with a lot more weight and professionalism, than we could ever bring to the table as a single company. FCPC would do that with or without us as a member, but we get to participate in the strategic direction FCPC chooses by being members at the table. FCPC offers excellent best practices exchange platforms for members of the industry while ensuring that these exchanges are in compliance with the competition law.”
- Christian F. Von Twickel, Executive Vice President, Dr. Oetker Canada Ltd
“Nestlé Purina is a strong supporter of FCPC for the breadth of knowledge it provides in keeping up with what is happening in the industry from a customer and government perspective, as well as have the opportunity to provide input on the direction the industry takes. Given the relative size of the Canadian marketplace, it is important to gain consensus on the handling of many important issues that impact us all, as we do not have the scale to do extensive customization. Many of our managers participate in FCPC committees, and appreciate the opportunity to network with peers, as well as gaining useful insights for their jobs. I have been on FCPC committees for some time and currently sit on the Industry Affairs Policy Committee as well as the Board of Governors.”
- Karen Kuwahara, President, Nestlé Purina PetCare
“FCPC provides important insights into emerging issues such as legislative activities, consumer trends and environmental standards. It also provides platform to speak as a united industry voice to help influence some of the issues that could have the greatest impact on our business.”
“I would like to acknowledge the excellent work that has been done and continues to be done by the FCPC not only on the part of the member companies, but for the industry as a whole. The association is comprised of a group of highly experienced, informed and educated people that champion our industry with trade, government and consumers. As a resource for Members the services of FCPC are a critical factor to ensure that best practices from both global and local sources are made known and industry standards are implemented to ensure efficiency and cost control.”
