In encouraging the reopening of Canadian businesses after pandemic shutdowns, Alberta’s provincial government hosted the 2021 @calgarystampede
The event celebrated local manufacturers and served as an opportunity for beef, dairy, honey, grain, vegetable, and hemp producers from across the province to network and gain investors and support. Rabbi Saul Emanuel of the MK met with various manufacturers at the event and heard across-the-board excitement regarding kosher certification and the opportunity to join the ever-exponentially growing kosher market.
After the event, Rabbi Emanuel met privately with Alberta’s Minister of Agriculture @devindreeshen and his staff. The two discussed the kosher opportunities in Alberta’s market and how collaboration between the MK and manufacturers in #Alberta could increase the marketability and access of Alberta’s products. The two also discussed @plantbasedcertification for relevant products and the high economic opportunities of this emerging market.
