How EU Agri-food companies can successfully benefit from CETA

The EU-Canada Comprehensive and Trade Agreement/CETA has made it easier to export goods and services, benefiting the business of EU companies. For the agri-food sector, it has achieved important milestones, such as:

  • Total elimination of tariffs for most agri-food products;
  • A significant increase of dairy quotas;
  • Access to Canadian procurement contracts for food products, as EU companies can bid for Canadian Federal, Provincial and Territorial government tenders;
  • The recognition of geographical indications;
  • The simplification of procedures allowing EU companies to invest in Canada;
  • An accrued compatibility of technical requirements.

Under CETA, the EU and Canada have agreed on a mutual recognition of sanitary and phytosanitary standards which will make it easier for EU companies to export food products to Canada.

However, CETA is not intended to modify the EU or Canada’s sanitary and phytosanitary rules that have to be strictly adhered to with regards to compliance concerning GMOs and hormones, for example.

The workshop is intended to help EU companies to maximize the benefits of CETA and exploit the untapped potential represented by the Canadian agri-food market, while learning to comply with its rules and regulations.
