Cam Dahl Will Be the First President of Cereals Canada

Cities, such as Winnipeg, need to find ways to recycle phosphorus and other nutrients for crop production, says Don Flaten of the University of Manitoba.

Cereals Canada announced today the appointment of Cam Dahl as the organization’s first-ever president.

The Manitoban most recently headed up the Manitoba Beef Producers as general manager, and has also served as commissioner of the Canadian Grain Commission, chair of the Canadian International Grains Institute Board of Directors and executive director of the Grain Growers of Canada. As president, Dahl will have oversight of the strategic direction, development and management of Cereals Canada operations, according to a press release. Cereals Canada recently announced it had chosen Winnipeg to host its headquarters.

“We are pleased to have a seasoned agriculture industry professional take the leadership position at Cereals Canada,” says Greg Porozni, an Alberta wheat producer and Cereals Canada Chair. “Cam is a strong leader, and his broad experience in agriculture and policy is a good fit for what Cereals Canada represents and what it has been established to do.”

According to a press release circulated by the Alberta Wheat Commission, Dahl is excited for the opportunity to be a part of building something he says is really needed in this industry and in Canada – a collaborative, driving force that represents and serves the cereals value chain both domestically and internationally. In a planning session slated for March 2014, the Cereals Canada Board of Directors, with the support of their new President, will be setting the strategic direction for the organization going forward.

Dahl starts his new role with Cereals Canada on March 3, 2014.
