About Cooperation in Agri-Food New Brunswick (CANB)

New Brunswickers spend $2.6 billion on food each year, almost all of which is imported. We currently grow only 8% of the vegetables we need, and we have lost production over many years as cheaper imports have entered the marketplace.

Cooperation in Agri-Food New Brunswick (CANB) was created to facilitate the aggregation, storage, distribution, sales, and marketing of New Brunswick agri-food products. In essence, we enable New Brunswick agri-food producers to reach wholesale, retail, and institutional markets that would be difficult to access on their own, thus moving local foods into mainstream markets.
