The interim chief executive officer for Canada’s agri-food supercluster is all about getting industry players together to push it to new heights during the next few years.
Rob Davies will lead the Smart Agri-Food Supercluster for now, as members continue to make their case to the federal government that they should have access to its $950-million innovation fund.
“Through innovation and technologies that are already out there, this is designed to increase Canada’s share of global agriculture exports,” said Davies, who has more than 30 years of experience in the agri-business sector.
He’s spent most of that time as the CEO of the Weyburn Inland Terminal in Saskatchewan.
“This is really designed to build lasting benefits.”
