Innovative Policy C2 Rd 2 Canada Marketing baords used to connect and empower small-to medium-scale farmers in markets
This case study focuses on the establishment of marketing boards in Canada and the rationale underpinning them. Historically, where farmers have not been empowered, commodity prices have been kept low for long periods of time, forcing producers to increase their efforts to extract value from the supply chain. As a result of policy changes and legislation, producers have become actively involved in marketing their products collectively in the domestic and international marketplace.
