About Us

Who We Are

Food and Beverage Manitoba’s mission is to provide services and resources to members to ensure the elevation and strengthening of the local food and beverage processing industry. We are here to ensure that your business has what it needs to survive the day-to-day and understand the opportunities and challenges that will help you thrive tomorrow.

Manitoba’s food and beverage industry is the province’s largest manufacturing sector – and one of the most challenging in which to succeed. From small startups to multi-national corporations, food and beverage producers, growers, processors to marketing boards, government agencies, retailers, packagers, and suppliers, the companies that make up our industry work tirelessly to meet shifting customer demands, increasing competition, and a fast-changing regulatory landscape.

Food & Beverage Manitoba (formerly the Manitoba Food Processors Association) is an industry-led, not-for-profit association that launched in 1993 to help Manitoba’s food and beverage industry achieve its full creative and competitive potential.

We do this by providing the expertise and resources our members need most: in developing new markets, training a skilled workforce, building human resource capacity, creating opportunities for networking and collaboration, and sharing critical information about domestic and international trade, industry regulations, and government programs.

Today, we’re nearly 300 members strong, united by our dedication to feeding our friends and families, across Canada and around the world, with the best food and beverage products that Manitoba has to offer.
