The CENTER PLATE partner recognition program focuses on those CPMA members who go above and beyond to support Canada’s only national fruit and vegetable association. CPMA is engaged in initiatives and programs to promote increased consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables thereby contributing to the improved health of the population and enhancing the strength of the industry. To support these initiatives, CPMA offers a range of sponsorship opportunities which allow members to increase their profile and boost their business.

Thank you to our Center Plate Partners. Their sponsorship and support enables many of the activities of CPMA.

To qualify for Center Plate, members must be a sponsor of a CPMA program or event. Center Plate levels are based on sponsorship of CPMA events/activities and the overall financial participation* in:

  • CPMA Programs & Events
  • Convention Registration
  • Trade Show Participation (Exhibit Booths, Additional Exhibitor Promotional Opportunities)
  • Membership

Corporate Sponsors receive visibility on CPMA’s Website, special recognition at the Annual CPMA Convention & Trade Show, and a special invitation to the Directors and New Members Reception.

*NOTE: Partners’ financial participation is calculated based on CPMA’s fiscal year ending October 31. Partners’ contributions are recorded in the fiscal year the sponsored programs/events occur, not when payment is received by CPMA. (For example, sponsorship of the 2015 Montréal Convention & Trade Show will appear in the report for the fiscal year November 1, 2014 to October 31, 2015.).
