Summary of Decision:
The Ontario Farm Products Marketing Commission made amendments to R.R.O. 1990, Reg. 440 (Vegetables for Processing - Marketing), under the Farm Products Marketing Act.
The amendments, which were requested by the Ontario Processing Vegetable Growers and the Ontario Fruit and Vegetable Processor Association, correct the methodology used to determine the minimum annual tonnage that a processor will purchase from an associated producer of processing carrots or tomatoes for the 2020-22 crop years. The methodology used to determine the minimum annual tonnage has been amended so that processors and producers use contracted tonnage in place of purchased tonnage.
The regulation was filed with the Registrar of Regulations and is now in effect.
