dc.descriptionThe Ontario Commodity Council represents the interests of member Farm Product Marketing Boards through a framework in which mutually beneficial operational reviews and development programs are initiated. It provides a centralized voice to comment on matters of concern to the agricultural industry. Farm Products Marketing Boards are organized under provincial jurisdiction and some of these boards are members of the Council. Delegates from the member boards form the executive body of the Council. The principle of marketing boards was intended to provide a system of correcting hardships prevalent in the agricultural industry. The marketing board industry system has been criticized by some consumers who claim that they operate for the prime benefit of farmers or producers, at the expense of consumers. The consumers benefit by: elimination of duplication of marketing and supply services, development of coordinated supply systems for the major retail chains through which farm products are distributed, encouraging a continuity of farm products by encouraging farmers to stay in the business, providing leadership in enforcing quality standards, providing leadership in promoting improved agricultural and operational practices, seeking out additional markets and market uses, making long term planning possible for farm operators through consistency in marketing and returns and establishing uniform price levels for all sales.en_US
