Program Partners

Thanks to our national and provincial partners, this program is successfully re-launched by the Food Processing Skills Canada (FPSC). The funding they continue to provide will ultimately improve food safety standards across hundreds of businesses in the province of British Columbia.

Canadian Agricultural Partnership

Canadian Agricultural Partnership (CAP) is a renewed $3 billion federal, provincial, and territorial government commitment to support agriculture.

The Post-Farm Food Safety Program is specifically designed to support agri-food businesses in improving food safety systems and practices, which in turn contributes to BC jobs, the economy, and diversifies rural communities. PFFS Program benefits greatly from CAP and its funding.

The Province of British Columbia

The province has provided leadership for the program in order to support its agri-food businesses. The three following priorities the BC Ministry of Agriculture has set are directly met with the goals of the Post-Farm Food Safety (PFFS) Program:

1. Growth of high quality and high value products;
2. Increase the industry competitiveness; and
3. Expanding domestic and international markets.

The Government of Canada

Funding was provided by the Canadian Federal Government to support and continue with Canada's top food safety reputation.

We encourage all eligible businesses, no matter where you are on the food safety spectrum, to apply for program funding!
