QUALITY & FOOD SAFETY RESOURCES

Perennia implements and delivers the Agri-Food Accelerator Program through funding under the federal-provincial Canadian Agricultural Partnership. As part of this program under the Safe4Market initiative, our Quality and Food Safety specialists develop fact sheets, videos, and other educational material as well as curate links to approved information sources. Nova Scotia based agriculture producers and agri-food and beverage processors may use these resources to advance their skills for safe and successful food production and processing operations.

Perennia’s Quality and Food Safety team have received inquiries from local food production operations looking for reassurance that they are doing everything they can to protect their employees and customers. If you are following the provincial and federal guidelines but want to do more please refer to the resources on the Food Safety during Covid-19 page.
