Tyler Case has worked with Pulse Canada. Through group discussions he will help CCPI identify future strategies. This is an important step for the cherry industry and needs input from many growers.

 

withDripSmCanadian Cherry Producers Inc. (CCPI) is a producer-controlled umbrella organization for the prairie cherry industry based on the superior 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 encourages:

  • Development of a prairie cherry industry designed and managed by the growers based on University of Saskatchewan cherries;
  • Documenting best practices of growers and sharing expertise of research institutions to benefit all members;
  • Co-operative processing to maintain standards of efficiency and quality; and
    The development of cherry production, value-added processing, and marketing opportunities for members.

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.
