If you attended our recent Simply Sheep seminar series hosted by Roma Tingle, you will have learned how Roma was able to purchase weigh scales for her farm through this program. Now Roma has kindly let us know that the program is open once again! The application process is clearly laid out, but let us know if you would like assistance. We will gladly assist you with the application process.

Funding applications are for the Tracebaility Adoption Program, and up to 75% cost-share funding is available!
Traceability/product tracing is the ability to follow the movement of an agri-food or seafood product through specified stage(s) of production, processing and distribution. It can be limited to critical points along the supply chain (e.g. livestock), or be “full-chain” from farm to fork (e.g. meat and fresh produce).
The objective of the Traceability Adoption Program (TAP) is to have increased implementation of facility-based traceability systems across the agri-food chain in primary and secondary agri-food and seafood production sectors.
Success of the program will be measured by the number of on-farm and post-farm businesses having implemented traceability initiatives, by commodity or industry groups (as per the North American Industry Classification System).
The TAP will assist producers/farmers, food processors and agri-food businesses by assisting with specific costs relating to the purchase and installation of traceability infrastructure, and the training of staff to implement traceability systems for plants, animals and agri-food products.
