Food Security: It’s Time To Act

Michael McCain keynote speech – Canadian Club of Toronto, Dec.12, 2016

Canada is the world’s breadbasket – abundant in both farmland and wealth – and yet 4,000,000 Canadians and 1 in 6 children don’t have food security. It’s time to shine a brighter light on this national issue and spur innovation, policy solutions and broader collaboration.

On December 12, 2016, Michael McCain, President and CEO of Maple Leaf Foods, discussed the daunting issue of food security and the launch of the new Maple Leaf Foods Centre for Action on Food Security.
