About the pilot project

Fulfilling a promise made at the Agriculture ministers' meeting in July 2010, the Government of Canada in partnership with provincial governments will invest up to $5 million for a series of 17 pilot projects that will help meat processors move their high-quality product across the country, while complying with national food safety standards.

A total of 17 pilots were selected across Canada. Pilot locations reflect a representative sample of species, meat processing activities and plant size. On site work at the pilot locations was completed between February to July 2011.

FPT officials collected information from non-federally registered businesses interested in participating as a pilot. They then selected pilot businesses based on a pre-established set of criteria including an appropriate representation of meat processing activities in Canada.
