The BC Cherry Association (BCCA) represents growers, marketers, packers, researchers and industry members. The BCCA sponsors research to grow and deliver top quality cherries to markets around the world. We also work to promote and strengthen marketing opportunities.
The BCCA supports research projects that help advance the cherry industry. Successful projects on pest control, post harvest handling, breeding, and disease suppression are examples of work done in past.
The BCCA works with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and the BC Ministry of Agriculture to administer export programs. We also act as the industry body when negotiating market access for new cherry export deals.
