National Index on Agri-Food Performance

Over 100 participants attended the webinar ‘National Index on Agri-Food Performance’ that was organized by various Canadian agri-food agencies, replacing a seminar that was originally scheduled for the same day in Ottawa but had to be cancelled because of the Covid-19 pandemic.

After the webinar a poll indicated that most participants agreed that there is ‘signficant’ need to build a national index to track the sustainability performance of Canada’s agri-food industry. I kicked off the seminar with a general introduction on where the push for benchmarking comes from and what the World Benchmarking Alliance intends to do in this space.
