Harry Siemens with CPC chair Rick Bergmann – Canada Services plans and Japanese Trade Mission

Rick Bergmann of Steinbach, chair of the Canadian Pork Council said the group on the trade mission to Japan included 15 producers from across Canada.

“We spent our time primarily in Tokyo and what a testament to going to the Costco stores in Tokyo seeing Canadian branded pork, the verified Canadian pork brand on a lot of the meat,” said Bergmann. “So for me, it was great to see the brands of HyLife, Maple Leaf and Olymel and others is a testament of all the hard work that producers are doing here in Canada to provide a product recognized as superior in Japan.”
