AIC’s CEO presents at HoC Standing Committee on Agriculture and Agri-Food

The CEO of the Agri-Food Innovation Council (AIC), presented at the House of Commons Standing Committee on Agriculture and Agri-Food on the issue of supply chains.

In the past two years, Canada experienced serious supply chain issues that had a direct impact on consumers and therefore made the issue visible.  However, supply chain issues pre-date the pandemic.  Whether due to systemic problems, floods and fires, protests or trade concerns, supply chain issues have had an increasingly negative impact on the agri-food sector.

Human resources, logistics, capacity, infrastructure, trade are all crucial parts to solve some of the supply chain issues.  However, research and innovation also present solutions to address some of these issues.
