Event Details

Is the outlook for BC agriculture and agri-food positive? Gross farm revenues have been steadily climbing mostly due to the strong demand of domestic and foreign consumers for high-quality food. Production expenses also climbed which moderated the recent growth in net income. The demand for farmland remains robust, so the overall financial health of BC farms is strong. Yet a few disrupters emerged lately and changed the economic environment: growing trade tensions, shifting food preferences, labour shortages, etc. Learn about the most relevant trends to identify future opportunities.
