Food Processors of Canada was created in 1949 as the Canadian Food Processors Association (CFPA) and merged with the Canadian Frozen Food Association (CFFA) to become the Food Institute of Canada (FIC) in 1989. The Food Institute was the strategic response to expected changes that would come with globalization. As expected, the domestic food processing industry began to change shape with many multinationals moving decision-making and production south.
However, Canadian investors filled the void and in 2002 the organization was renamed Food Processors of Canada to better reflect the Canadian reality.
Always supporting our investors. In 2017 FPC welcomed Denise Allen as its President & CEO.
