Since joining the FBA team in 2019, I’ve enjoyed every opportunity to meet our members and industry partners. My goal with FBA is to build a strong network for food & beverage processors that will become a resource for everything our members need. We are accomplishing this at a fast pace with the launch of our new website, industry guidance tool, extensive training and education workshops, and numerous programs available for members to help grow their businesses and export products.

We offer opportunities for members to showcase and market their products through programs like CTV What’s for Dinner, Pitch opportunities for the Sobeys Local programs, or social media programming with our very own Kilted Chef. New activities are being added to our calendar every month. We have had a hand in helping many food and beverage companies get in front of Buyers, cross the border into export markets, and make important connections with industry peers.

I love to hear your success stories and I am grateful to local companies who share their best practices with us and other local companies. Together we can build a stronger and more successful food and beverage community and industry, serving Atlantic Canada and the rest of the world. As I continue to travel through our beautiful region, eating and drinking amazing local food, I look forward to meeting every one of our members and association partners!
