The CanadaGAP Program responds to the needs of the marketplace. Increasingly, retailers, food service companies and food processors require their suppliers to be enrolled in and/or certified to a food safety program.

Several Canadian food companies have officially endorsed the CanadaGAP Program standards and are requiring their growers to be CanadaGAP-certified (or to participate in a similar certification program). These include Metro, Loblaw Companies Limited, Wal-mart, McCain Foods Canada, Simplot Canada, Lamb-Weston and Cavendish, among others.
