The Canadian Horticultural Council (CHC) has been representing fruit and vegetable growers across Canada for almost 100 years.

We are well known to government and affiliated industry and are often the first organization approached when broad-based consultation with the national industry or specific commodity sectors is required.

Our members and staff have been responsible for spearheading important projects, such as the On-Farm Food Safety (OFFS) Program, Integrated Fruit Production (IFP), Bacterial Ring Rot Insurance Feasibility Study, creation of an Export Development Strategy for potatoes, a benchmarking study of Canadian potatoes against competitors in countries of interest, and more.
