SFGA is a grower-directed association dedicated to the production and marketing of premium quality Saskatchewan-grown fruit. A voluntary non-profit association, the SFGA is interested in the development of a strong and vibrant fruit industry.
To meet industry needs, the SFGA works with researchers, government, processors and consumers. We collaborate with these stakeholders on research, market development, quality standards, and other initiatives.
The SFGA is incorporated under Saskatchewan’s “Non-profit Corporations Act, 1995” and follows a constitution originally formulated in 1988 with amendments as approved from time to time at our AGM’s.
