Working with Manitobans to ensure food is safe from farm to fork is the goal of the Growing Assurance – Food Safety initiatives being launched as part of the federal-provincial Growing Forward 2 agreement, Agriculture, Food and Rural Initiatives Minister Ron Kostyshyn and Member of Parliament James Bezan (Selkirk-Interlake), on behalf of Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz, announced.

The on-farm stream provides financial assistance to agricultural producers to adopt assurance systems and best management practices related to: food safety issues like storage and sanitation; biosecurity; plant and animal health; traceability, and animal welfare. Programming will also support surveillance and emergency preparedness systems.

The processing and distribution stream provides financial assistance to food processors, distributors, transporters and direct contact packaging manufacturers. The goal is to help implement food safety systems and best practices that reduce risk factors throughout the industry.
