Industry responds to beef industry report

OTTAWA, Jan. 9, 2014 — An independent beef industry report is calling for "a more profitable, competitive and synergistically aligned Canadian beef industry." Building a Stronger Canadian Beef Industry: Recommendations from the 'Straw Man Process' is a response to CAPI's earlier work (and our beef report from September 2012). It adopts CAPI's core ideas for change: embracing a supply-chain approach, working together with a more unified voice, better sharing of information and developing a consumer-focused strategy for success. In a press release, the report's authors acknowledge that CAPI's catalyzing report "showed the Canadian beef industry is not maximizing the significant opportunities that the future offers."
