CPMA names 2022 Produce Champion


The Canadian Produce Marketing Association (CPMA) has named its 2022 Produce Champion: Scot Davidson, member of parliament for York—Simcoe (Ontario).

According to a CPMA release: The fresh fruit and vegetable sector greatly appreciates MP Davidson’s introduction of Bill C-280, the Financial Protection for Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Farmers Act. If passed, Bill C-280 would establish a deemed trust mechanism for fresh produce growers and sellers in Canada, ensuring payment in the case of buyer bankruptcy.

“Since his election in 2019, Scot Davidson has shown tremendous leadership for the Canadian fresh fruit and vegetable industry, and particularly as a strong representative for growers in the Holland Marsh area,” said Ron Lemaire, president, CPMA. “That support has benefitted the entire industry and we are truly grateful for his engagement and his advocacy on a range of issues, and most especially for his work to establish a financial protection mechanism for produce sellers, a significant focus for our members for many years.”
