Registering annual sales surpassing $28 billion, exports exceeding $6.1 billion and providing direct employment for some 66,000 people in both rural and urban locations from coast to coast, the meat industry is the largest component of Canada’s food processing sector.
For nearly a century, the CMC has represented Canada’s federally registered meat packers, meat processors and suppliers of good and services to the meat industry.
CMC provides evidence-based advocacy on behalf of its members, works to secure and improve Canada’s global meat competitiveness and promotes a balanced diet, which includes high-quality and nutritious Canadian meat.
THE CANADIAN MEAT COUNCIL IS FOCUSED ON FOUR KEY PRIORITIES:
