Food Processors of Canada supports tariff relief for food processors

OTTAWA, Nov. 29, 2011 /CNW/ - The Honourable Jim Flaherty, Minister of Finance, announced on November 27th, further tariff relief measures for Canada's manufacturers, including the food processing sector.

The Food Processors of Canada supports this initiative which helps lower ingredient costs.  It levels the playing field so that Canadian processors can better compete against imported finished product.

Christopher Kyte, the Association's president said "the tariff is a tax on consumers and business.  Eliminating the tariff will reduce consumer prices and keep jobs in Canada."

There will be no impact on apple growers as processors will continue to use high quality Canadian apples to make single strength juice, apple sauce and other specialty products.

The Food Processors of Canada (FPC) represents Canadian businesses servicing markets in Canada and abroad.
