  • The Wellington Advertiser - Chinese food safety delegation visits Mapleton facilities
    focus was learning about Canadian food safety best practices and they came to this area for a number of reasons One of our partners within the food safety area of course is the University of Guelph a Canadian research institution in food safety said Preikschas Keeping it within the area we wanted to expand out and get to some of the small providers of food services so they can actually see at a local level how food safety is initiated Ross pointed out the trip was initiated by the Chinese government This delegation s here on their own initiative They wanted to come to Canada They are paying their own way to come and learn about the products that we have said Ross Preikschas added members of the Chinese delegation are very inquisitive they are getting a lot of information and asking a lot of questions so they are definitely seeing things that they re taking back with them Through an interpreter Li told the Wellington Advertiser the delegation needs to learn a lot from here because we have a larger population in China and farmers already have very strict regulations but now we re going to bring what we learn here and apply it in China Li also said We re pretty impressed with the size of the food market that we went to and we re pretty impressed with the environment inside it as well In China we also have grocery stores in rural areas but compared to the size here the Chinese markets are much much smaller so we hope we can improve that way in the future as well While the delegation was not on a trade mission per se both Preikschas and Ross feel such exchanges are part of the process surrounding international trade A lot of this isn t necessarily going to have an immediate impact on anything to do with export and trade but it builds confidence in the Canadian food system and how we re looking at food safety said Preikschas Ross added The other thing we d like to do is to establish the relationship so that China knows understand and accepts Canadian products for what they re worth Ross told Li it s good to have you understand how we do things so you know that you re getting a steady flow of the best quality products Ross believes international trade is among the keys to a bright future for Canadian agriculture One of the things we have is a great opportunity to feed the world We can grow much more food and grow it in a sustainable fashion than I believe any other country in the world and do it continuously and do it at a profit Ross also believes producers have an important part to play in the process There s very few people at the grass roots levels that get to dialogue with these policy makers he said What I do know is there is huge market
