OTTAWA, ON – November 20, 2019 – FCPC congratulates all new and continuing Cabinet ministers in this Parliament. As the largest employer in the manufacturing sector in Canada, the food and consumer products industry will look to work with all Minsters and parliamentarians to advance and deliver smart and effective policies that will help us to grow and support the growing needs of Canadians.
The promise of a new government is the opportunity to address the critical issues that continue to impact our industry. We look forward to working with all parties to support industry competiveness by modernizing regulations that impede growth, levelling the playing field between manufacturers and retailers, providing support to innovate, modernize and grow operations, and focusing on normalizing trade in North America and providing access to foreign markets.
FCPC is Canada's largest industry association representing the companies that manufacture and distribute the vast majority of food, beverage and consumer goods found on grocery store shelves. Our members provide jobs to almost 300,000 Canadians, and include small and large multinational and Canadian owned companies. Learn more at www.fcpc.ca and follow us at @FCPC1
