Food and Beverage Ontario leads, coordinates and provides input on a number of programs, resources and tools available to the sector.

In the fall of 2012, FBO completed an Economic Impact Analysis of the Food and Beverage Processing Sector. This report clearly identifies the Ontario food and beverage processing sector as a major economic contributor in the Province of Ontario. The report has been valuable in communicating the importance of the sector to government, industry and academic stakeholders.

With support from Growing Forward, a federal-provincial-territorial agreement FBO successfully delivered the Managing for Success program. This program was designed to improve awareness, attitude and skills specific to best management practices. Activities included on-site business assessments, business management tools and educational opportunities such as executive training series, webinars and workshops. A number of resources from this program continue to be made available to Ontario businesses.

FBO is pleased to be a member of the recently formed Provision Coalition. Provision is a coalition of 11 member associations representing the interests of Canadian food and beverage manufacturers and input supply sectors regarding the economic, environmental and social benefits that accompany operating in a sustainable manner.
