Manitoba Canola Growers Association is encouraging producers to take part in their survey regarding the potential merger of Bunge and Viterra.

The MCGA notes they have been actively engaged with the Competition Bureau raising member concerns about the potential merger and the fact that it would substantially lessen competition among buyers and crushers.

They note as a result it would put limitations on farmer's choices and would potentially impact price competitiveness.

The Competition Bureau is still seeking input from farmers on the merger 

The MCGA has developed a survey of questions from the Competition Bureau to help gather members’ input.

Producers are encouraged to follow the links in MCGA'S Canola Growers email to complete the survey by October 25th. 

All responses will be compiled and anonymously submitted in a report to the Competition Bureau.
