Plant Health

Just like all other living things, fruits and vegetables can also be plagued with viruses and bacteria which can maim or kill them. There are several tools which can be used to help protect the health of fruits and vegetables, including the use of phytosanitary certificates, testing and monitoring programs, prompt reporting and inspection of imported product.

CPMA works with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency, the Plant Health Directorate and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada to promote the healthy production of fruits and vegetables in Canada and around the world.
