Canadian Pork (CPC) is pleased about the signing of the Canada -Honduras Free Trade Agreement (FTA). The Free Trade agreement on behalf of the Government of Canada will help restore pork access to a market that could be worth an estimated 5 to 7million dollars in sales in the first year of the FTA.

In addition to the FTA, CPC is pleased with Minister of Agriculture Gerry Ritz’s announcement that all pork from Canadian federally registered establishments can be sold into the Honduran market since Honduras has approved Canada’s pork inspection and certification system.

The CPC serves as the national voice for hog producers in Canada. A federation of nine provincial pork industry associations, our organization’s purpose is to play a leadership role in achieving and maintaining a dynamic and prosperous Canadian pork sector.
