Ontario and federal governments fund traceability

The governments of Canada and Ontario have announced a combined $21.5 million for the Traceability Foundations Initiative, a new program to track food “from the farm to the dinner plate.”

A joint release said the program will support projects led by the agri-food industry to share information, enhance industry competitiveness and improve the speed in which Ontario responds in the event of a food product recall.

This funding comes from the $500-million Agriculture Flexibility fund for projects that reduce production costs, increase competitiveness, improve environmental sustainability, promote innovation and respond to market challenges.

Successful applicants are eligible for a maximum of $5 million.
