Geographical indications (GI) systems have seen a growing interest from producers, who are keen to gain recognition for their know-how. Consumers, too, are increasingly concerned with food quality, traceability and sustainability of agricultural production.
In the western provinces of Canada, the promotion of the local identity of products and the protection of the know-how of local producers are already well developed, particularly in the wine industry and in the indigenous culinary culture.
Do you want to know more about food, identity and origin schemes and their added value for producers, exporters and consumers in Western Canada?
Join us for a two-webinar series, on 13 and 20 May, organised by the Delegation of the European Union to Canada and the EU Chamber of Commerce in Canada-West, in partnership with food and agricultural experts and producers of GI products.
