CFEA Description 

Welcome to the
Canadian Food Exporters Association (CFEA)

Are you a food, beverage or ingredient manufacturer looking to export or expand into new markets, a buyer looking to source Canadian products or a consumer looking for that unique recipe then look no further the CFEA is here to help you with your needs.


CFEA is a voluntary non-profit industry association founded in September 1996 by a group of fourteen companies who felt the need for a resource focused on the enhancement of export efforts in the food and beverage industry, particularly (but not exclusively) on the part of small to medium-sized enterprises (SME's).  The mission of the organization is to:

  • Increase the profitable export sales of food, beverage and ingredient products.

  • Increase the number of small to medium-sized food, beverage and ingredient processors and manufacturers exporting.

  • Raise the international profile of Canadian food, beverage and ingredient products.

The CFEA takes pride in offering programs and services that contributes to the success of our members and clients export initiatives. The CFEA makes every effort to ensure our members and clients participate only in programs in markets that hold potential for them. If you are unsure if a market is the right fit for your company please reach out to us for guidance. Your success is important to us!
