Opening of the 31st edition of the Expo-congrès du porc - The FPPQ: a partner in the pork sector



    LONGUEUIL, QC, April 8 /CNW Telbec/ - The Fédération des producteurs de
porcs du Québec (FPPQ) is happy to participate and to be a partner once again
in this year's Expo-congrès du porc opening today in Saint-Hyacinthe. For this
31st edition of the Expo, the FPPQ has positioned itself around the theme of
partnership: "Partners in creating a quality product". Visitors to our booth
can learn about innovations in the areas of animal wellbeing and the
environment and discover new value-added cuts developed by the marketing
department over the past few years. "It's a pleasure to get together every
year and share our knowledge with others who are just as passionate about pork
production as we are," commented Jean-Guy Vincent, president of the Fédération
des producteurs de porcs. "We hope that this year's theme for our booth will
become the leitmotiv for the whole sector."

    Accessible to All

    The FPPQ will also take this opportunity to announce the availability of
their website in English. Over the winter, pork producers had their website
translated into English, giving as many people as possible access to their
work.
    Internet users can access all information (fact sheets, etc.) at the
following address: www.leporcduquebec.qc.ca/en/. "We noticed some
international visitors to our website over the years," Mr. Vincent stated, "so
we decided to make the site accessible to everyone. We are opening up to the
world and our website is a manifestation of that evolution."
