To Cereals Canada Members,
Cereals Canada is pleased to announce that Jim Smolik will join Cereals Canada as an Advisor effective April 1, 2021 on a one-year term to help us achieve our market access and government relations goals.
Jim is a well-known advocate for Canadian agriculture. He has held senior roles both in government and industry over the past two decades. Some of you may already know Jim as he was a past board member of both heritage organizations. His expertise covers a broad range of issues (domestically and internationally) that impact the value-chain. Reporting directly to the CEO, Jim will leverage his experience and knowledge regarding producers, government, and the value chain including producer commissions, consumers, end users and international customers to advise on complex market access, policy and trade issues.
We are excited to welcome Jim into this role and to be able to use his experience and expertise to support our members and move the cereals industry forward.
