Market Access Activities
Canada exports over 20 million tonnes of wheat, oats and barley every year and shipments are inspected by processors and importers to ensure that contract specifications are being met. If excessive pesticide residues or mycotoxins such as Ochratoxin (OTA) and Deoxynivalenol (DON) are detected, it can derail domestic and export sales, causing millions of dollars in losses and putting future access to key markets at risk.

- We maintain and expand access to key markets.
