About the Program

To achieve a world-class level of food safety, British Columbia (BC) food and beverage manufacturers are taking part in the Post-Farm Food Safety and Traceability Program. This cost-sharing initiative, actively running from December 2016 until January 31st, 2018, can provide your business with up to $19,000 or $35,000 in funding for your food safety and traceability systems.

Our goal is to ensure foods processed in BC are the safest across the country and the world.

Funded by the governments of Canada and British Columbia through Growing Forward 2, a federal-provincial-territorial initiative, your company may use the program funding in a variety of ways: perform facility assessments, implement food safety training programs, or install new, necessary equipment. The opportunities are endless.
