The Canadian Centre for Food Integrity (CCFI) is promoting Canada’s Agriculture Day 2024, just around the corner. On February 13, Canada’s Agriculture Day will serve as a platform to acknowledge the dedicated efforts of individuals who play a crucial role in Canada’s agri-food supply chain and ensuring the availability of quality food products worldwide.
Ashley Bruner, Interim CEO and research manager, highlights the significance of Canada's Agriculture Day, saying, "This is a great opportunity for all Canadians to learn more about where their food comes from and to interact with the agri-food community. I encourage everyone to participate in the online conversations and celebrate the food they love and the people who produce it."
On February 13, 2024, Canadians are encouraged to celebrate Canada’s Agriculture Day in diverse ways:
- Share your celebration through photos and videos on social media using #CdnAgDay.
- Participate in a virtual farm tour to gain insights into the agricultural process.
- Showcase a meal crafted from Canadian ingredients.
- Engage with the agricultural community by asking questions and listening to the unique stories of farmers and producers.
Launched in 2017 under the leadership of Agriculture More Than Ever, Canada’s Agriculture Day has become an annual tradition embraced by Canadians across the nation. The official hashtag #CdnAgDay continues to unite individuals in expressing their appreciation for the agricultural sector through social media.
