Canadian Kashrut body gets major federal grant for food safety

March 5, 2019 from CJNews
"The Jewish Community Council of Montreal, which certifies kashrut under the MK heksher, will receive a $695,000 federal grant toward its initiative to enhance food safety."
"Mount Royal MP Anthony Housefather announced on March 4 that the money will come from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s AgriAssurance Program. The program provides aids to not-for-profit organizations, to help industry develop standards and systems to support verifiable health and safety claims about Canadian agricultural and agri-food products, Housefather explained."
"Specifically, the funding will allow the council to better assist small- and medium-sized businesses to meet international food safety standards, including expanding information about nutrition and possible allergens."
