FCC customers receive payment for CRSB Certification

In a new program, Farm Credit Canada (FCC) is supporting Canadian beef producers certified by the Canadian Roundtable for Sustainable Beef (CRSB).

“Canadian producers are already expert stewards of the land and livestock, and the beef sector has been a leader in demonstrating their sustainable practices through the CRSB,” said Todd Klink, FCC’s vice-president of marketing. “We are pleased to work with the CRSB to recognize FCC customers who have already achieved their certification and to encourage additional producers to become certified.”

The FCC Sustainability Incentive Program will provide a payment to FCC customers certified through Verified Beef Production Plus, Where Food Comes From Canada, and the Ontario Corn Fed Beef Quality Assurance Program.

“The Canadian Roundtable for Sustainable Beef applauds FCC for seeing the benefits of CRSB Certified beef production practices,” said Anne Wasko, CRSB chair and co-owner of Bar 4 Bar Land and Cattle Inc.

The payment will be a portion of a customer’s lending with FCC, to a maximum of $2,000 per year. CRSB Certified producers can re-apply for the incentive payment annually.

For producers interested in becoming certified and taking advantage of the incentive payment, the CRSB program involves an on-going audit process to ensure operations are meeting sustainability standards based upon five principles, including natural resources, people and community, animal health and welfare, food, and efficiency and innovation.
