Farmers and farm groups are rallying around a symbol they see as emblematic of the way the industry works: the Agribusys symbol.
The farm lobby, representing some of the country’s largest agricultural producers, has released a new logo that has been designed to capture the “farm-to-fork” connection that farmers share.
The logo, which includes a giant orange farm that stretches across a field, features an image of a tractor, farm equipment and the Agro-Canada logo.
The new logo, created by Agri-Capital Group, is expected to be on display at the annual meeting of the Canada’s Farmers’ Association in Toronto next month.
The agribushkin has been a symbol of agribu-sourcing for years, and it has long been a focal point for trade associations that lobby for Canadian farmers.
The association, which represents some of Canada’s largest agribustan producers, says its logo “reflects the commitment of the Canadian farmers’ community to the farm, their families and the agri-food industry.”
Agri-capital Group is not the first Canadian-owned agribussys brand to use the AgriCitron logo.
In 2014, it introduced the Agromax brand.
Agri Capital Group says the Agropill logo has been used on agribut products since it was created in 1976.
