Agri-Food Council Marketing Boards

A marketing board is an agency mandated to perform promotion and development activities, including research, as well as to regulate and control the production and marketing of a particular agricultural product.

Marketing boards are funded by a mandatory, non-refundable producer levy. The agency uses levy money to fulfil its mandate and to operate.

Marketing boards are led by a board of directors elected by registered quota-holding producers (i.e. producers who actively produce quota). Any registered producer may hold a position on the board of directors. Election protocols are identified in each marketing board's regulations.

Research and development activities conducted by these agencies help producers reduce input costs, increase productivity, and generally improve farm profitability.

All Saskatchewan marketing boards are supply-managed and actively participate in the national supply management system. The three pillars of supply management are: the setting of production; the determination of the producer price; and the controlling of imports.

The following marketing boards currently operate in Saskatchewan.
