Canadian Cherry Producers Inc. (CCPI) is a producer-controlled umbrella organization for the prairie cherry industry based on the premium University of Saskatchewan cultivars.  Growers from other provinces and some US states are trying these cherries to evaluate their growth, disease and pest resistance in a variety of climates.

It's purpose is to promote the industry, educate consumers and producers, and encourage research.

CCPI is non-profit corporation that:

  •  Promotes the prairie cherry industry
  • Informs consumers and producers
  • Documents and shares best practices and research results to benefit all members
  • Encourages co-operative activities to create marketing and processing opportunities
  • Initiates tart cherry research

We believe in partnerships that will advance the ability of growers to sustain their farms. Together growers can tackle industry issues that would overwhelm individual endeavors.
