The BC Vegetable Marketing Commission provides for orderly marketing
in the vegetable industry. It is directed by an appointed Chair and
vegetable producers elected democratically by their fellow producers.
The regulated components are:
- greenhouse vegetable crops including beefsteak tomatoes,
tomatoes-on-the-vine, peppers and cucumbers;
- processing vegetable crops including peas, beans, corn, broccoli,
brussels sprouts, cauliflower, cole crops, and strawberries;
- and storage crops including potatoes, carrots, rutabagas and others.
The Commission acts by the authority delegated through the
Natural Products Marketing (BC)
Act and its Regulations.
The Vegetable Scheme
establishes the Commission and prescribes it rules and procedures.
The Commission's decisions are subject to the supervisory and appellate
functions of the
Farm Industry Review
