Crystal Mackay steps down

Crystal Mackay will be stepping down from her position as president of the Canadian Centre for 
Food Integrity (CCFI), following the CCFI’s annual meeting at the end of April 2019.

 

“Crystal has been a catalyst in building public trust in food and farming,” stated Kim McConnell, CCFI chair. “CCFI and the Canadian public trust initiative has benefited significantly under Crystal’s leadership.”

 

A recent CCFI news release announcing MacKay’s departure says that while she is leaving her position at the CCFI, she remains committed to its vision, and is a strong supporter of the role the CCFI plays in the building trust in Canada’s food system. “I am committed to support this important organization and the public trust cause as I pursue my interests and passions for public speaking, communications and training and development,” said MacKay.

 

The Canadian Centre for Food Integrity is a non-profit organization that helps Canada's food system earn trust by coordinating research, resources, dialogue and training.
