The Canadian Produce Marketing Association (CPMA) has named Lianne Rood, MP for Lambton-Kent-Middlesex, Ont. its 2024 Produce Champion.

CPMA’s annual Produce Champion award is given to a Member of Parliament or Senator who has been supportive of the produce industry and effective at bringing industry issues to the forefront on Parliament Hill.

“Since her election in 2019, MP Rood has been actively engaged in issues important to the fresh fruit and vegetable sector and a strong voice holding the government accountable to supporting issues important to our sector,” said CPMA president, Ron Lemaire. “Her own family background in the fresh produce industry has given her a passion and dedication that is evident in her work on the Standing Committee for Agriculture and Agri-food and her continued efforts in support of Canadian agriculture.”

In recognition of this award, MP Lianne Rood will be featured on an upcoming episode of CPMA’s podcast, Produce Talks, in a conversation with Lemaire. The 2024 Produce Champion will also be highlighted at the next CPMA Convention and Trade Show, which takes place in Montreal, April 8-10, 2025.
