Industry Minister François-Philippe Champagne says multinational food producers must meet with Ottawa to discuss high food prices.
After calling CEOs of major grocers for a “historic” meeting in Ottawa to deal with food inflation, Industry Minister François-Philippe Champagne now has his sights set on multinational food producers.
The minister said on Sept. 18 that the CEOs of international giants like Unilever, Nestlé, and PepsiCo will need to sit down with the federal government to discuss reducing food prices.
“We’re going to have the same tone we had with the giant grocers in Canada,” said Mr. Champagne, who plans to invite between five to 10 major producers.
