The federal government’s in-person consultations on a Food Policy for Canada came to Charlottetown Wednesday.
Among those speaking at the session were Agriculture and Agri-Food Minister and Cardigan MP Lawrence MacAulay, Charlottetown MP Sean Casey, and Chef Michael Smith.
They talked of the benefits that would come with a Food Policy for Canada, the biggest would be helping Canadians make better food choices.
The idea is to develop a policy that would help increase access to affordable food; improveg health and food safety; conserve our soil, water, and air; and grow more high-quality food.
Along with the in-person consultations, an online survey is being conducted.
The policy is expected to be developed by early next year.
