The Grain Growers of Canada (GGC) has welcomed its latest member: the Saskatchewan Wheat Development Commission (Sask Wheat).

Established in 2013, Sask Wheat represents 24,000 Saskatchewan farmers, and identifies and helps analysis, market improvement, and advocacy for worthwhile and sustainable wheat manufacturing.

“Joining GGC reinforces our dedication to working with key trade stakeholders to develop a centered strategy to nationwide priorities and make sure the views of Saskatchewan growers are heard in Ottawa,” says Sask Wheat chair, Brett Halstead. “By working collectively, we may help ship the circumstances that Canada’s hard-working grain farmers must proceed the expansion of our sector and defend the financial viability of the household farm.”

Earlier this 12 months, GGC introduced their partnership with Sask Wheat on their ‘Road to 2050’ local weather options initiative, centered on bettering on-farm sustainability and the competitiveness of Canadian agriculture on each the home and worldwide entrance.

With the addition of Sask Wheat, GGC now represents roughly 90,000-grain farmers throughout the nation by means of their membership. This reinforces the Canadian grains sector’s dedication to standing collectively and willingness to work collaboratively to profit all Canadians.
