Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz announced an investment in research, traceability and product development that will boost the competitive edge Canadian hog producers need to succeed in domestic and international markets. The investment of over $15 million will help deliver a better profit back to the farm gate and strengthen the industry for the future.

The Government of Canada investment will support four projects which include:
• $9.5 million for the Swine Cluster to bring together industry, government and scientists to address the research and development priorities of pork producers, including food safety, meat quality and feed input issues;
• $3.3 million for the Canadian Pork Council to strengthen the national swine traceability system, which is designed to track the movement of hogs across the country;
• $1.4 million for the Canadian Swine Exporters Association to promote pork in international markets through market development, brand building and industry-to-industry trade promotion; and,
• $839,480 for the Canadian Centre for Swine Improvement to develop methods to predict marbling in hogs through better technology, genetics and feed, and to promote marbling as a major quality trait for domestic and international markets.
