Joint Advocacy Events – Fall Harvest and Farm to Plate

Farm to Plate and Fall Harvest are our joint advocacy events with the Canadian Produce Marketing Association (CPMA) held annually in the spring and the fall. These events bring our members and growers directly in front of policymakers and feature a very popular evening reception where attendees informally gather.

All sponsors above $1000 have their logo prominently displayed on the event websites, signage at the evening reception (with over 100 attendees), and inclusion in the post-event communication to members of both FVGC and CPMA.

There are a number of packages to choose from which include additional options for visibility, which you can read about below:

The Growing into the Future program is an investment into the future of our organization, ensuring continued industry participation, growth, and strong leadership.


Your contribution will allow participants to learn about the operations of FVGC, federal issues that impact the industry, how to advocate, and connect with fruit and vegetable leaders from across Canada at special events. We need your help to launch this program for the future of our organization.


As a Growing into the Future sponsor, you will automatically receive some free promotions. This includes your logo on the FVGC website on both the Growing into the Future and the 2024 Ottawa AGM web pages, on the “Thank you to our sponsors” page in the AGM book, which is distributed to all 150+ delegates, and in the spring issue of Fresh Thinking, FVGC’s semi-annual bilingual print magazine that reaches 5,000+ people across Canada, the US and internationally.
