Our History

Created in 2009 as a council for Canadian food processors, FPHRC works long term with industry partners, processors, educators and regulatory agencies to develop a stronger, more prosperous industry with leading edge standards of employee preparedness and productivity through human resource strategies and programs.

Our industry-driven organization had its beginnings in a two year, two phase initiative in order to create the council, which was heavily supported by the food processing and manufacturing industry across Canada.

Our Vision:

“Educate, cultivate and empower an exceptionally skilled workforce
for the food and beverage processing industry.”

We Are Committed to the Success of the Industry
