  • Long Term International Strategy for Canadian Greenhouse Vegetables
    can be in conflict To the marketers that have developed international supply arrangements Canada is one but not exclusive primary source of supply especially during the April to October period To the growers the marketers represent their only exclusive marketing arrangement and therefore they depend on the marketers to move whatever product they are able to produce Conflict can arise when marketers are simultaneously marketing product from Canadian greenhouses and product which they have sourced from other parts of the world This is a practice that is referred to by the sector as co mingling Co mingling inhibits the ability to apply the Canada brand since the product is not exclusively Canadian in origin and may also increase phytosanitary and food safety risks Among other considerations product arriving in the packing plants from other parts of the world for repacking may introduce foreign pests into Canadian greenhouses that were not previously detected here If those same potential pests are found on product for re export to the US their presence may unfairly be attributed to Canadian grown product This risk could have serious negative implications that could cause difficulties for continuing open border access to the US market Therefore there is a strong need by growers to see foreign product repacked for export strictly segregated from Canadian product and correctly labeled so that there is neither deliberate nor inadvertent passing off of foreign product as Canadian The Canadian greenhouse vegetable sector has successfully weathered the rise in the value of the Canadian dollar vis à vis its US counterpart as well as continued to expand export volumes and values The sector has obtained a measure of relief on its cost structure by the decline in natural gas prices and the prospect of long term abundant supplies of natural gas in most parts of Canada This supply prospect comes from technological innovation and discovery in connection with shale gas The strategy development for this sector was undertaken through extensive consultation with growers and marketers in the sector as well as reviewing data for trends that enable reasonable estimates of future growth of the US market The data conveys optimism for the future Although more specific consumer research could be done this report draws on extensive consumer research done by Ipsos Reid in the Ontario market for the Ontario Greenhouse Vegetable Growers cited by permission and by trends identified in The Packer s 2011 Fresh Trends report including customized analysis of purchased data not otherwise published Key findings in this report are The USDA in its Long Term Forecast issued in February 2011 projects that imports of fresh fruits and vegetables will rise from 10 3 billion in 2009 to 20 2 billion in 2020 While this forecast is not disaggregated for greenhouse vegetable products specifically it shows that the consumer demand in the US for fresh fruits and vegetables will continue to grow and that a significant portion of the demand will be met by imported produce Thus the greenhouse vegetable

  • Members Contribute For Town of Slave Lake
    several weeks A fast spreading fire burnt several homes and an industrial area I visited the town on May 29th and felt that as AGGA members we can make a difference in this community There won t be any flowers in downtown Slave Lake This area had over 100 planters last year and the plants were supplied by one of the AGGA members Creative Landscapes Deborah Stumborg I asked her how we can help her She thought that the best way to perk up the spirit of the residents will be to plant flowers What started as an idea became a reality on June 7 at 3 00 p m when six cart loads several hanging baskets and other plant material was loaded into a truck and shipped to Slave Lake on June 8th The plant material was donated by HighQ Greenhouses Kuhlmann Greenhouses and Brenneis Other growers are upset with me that why they were not asked to donate more material Why they have been left out I am sure we could have raised several truck loads for this purpose Here are some pictures to share with you Anita and staff from Kuhlmann Greenhouses are helping to load the truck The truck is being loaded with flowering petunias I want to express my appreciation to all who contributed plant material and especially thankful to Dietrich Kuhlmann for arranging the delivery of plants to Slave Lake Special thanks to Deborah Stumborg for looking after the plants in the Town and getting it planted I hope the residents of Slave Lake will look at the flowers and get a boost in their spirits Thank you again for all the help from the AGGA For more informatin please read the article written in the Slave Lake Lakeside Leader submitted by Dr Moyhuddin
