Support for Obtaining U.S. Costco, Wholefoods, Halal and Kosher Certification
The AgriAssurance program offers 50% grant funding up to $50,000 towards obtaining third-party certification required to meet a specific export client product certification (e.g. Costco U.S. Addendum, Wholefoods’ Global Animal Partnership, Blue Nile’s Halal cheese certification). Funding is available to Canadian agriculture/agrifood businesses (including fish and seafood) that have less than 250 employees and $50 million in revenue, who have an export buyer expressing interest in purchasing their product(s) if certified. Eligible expenditures include:
- Contracted Professional Services
- Hiring New Employees
All eligible expenditures must directly relate to achieving first-time certification. Applicants will be assessed on their capability of serving an export market (e.g. have a supply chain in place, sufficient production capacity, etc.).
