“Mr. Kamenz brings broad agricultural knowledge and proven chairing skills to the Ontario Farm Products Marketing Commission,” said Leona Dombrowsky, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs. “He’s already shown his commitment to moving agriculture forward and this appointment will benefit producers and their processor-partners in our regulated marketing system.”

Kamenz has worked on behalf of agriculture in many capacities including the Canadian Federation of Agriculture’s Environment and Science Committee and the Canadian Agri-Food Research Council.

“I’ve spent the last 25 years building relationships with all stakeholders in the agri-food sector,” said Kamenz. “I look forward to furthering that goal with the other seven members of the Ontario Farm Products Marketing Commission.”
