The Prince Edward Island Commercial Apple Growers’ Association was formed in 1995 to promote and encourage the advancement of the apple industry in P.E.I.. The Association plays a leading role in the ongoing education of apple growers and provides a forum where “best practices” can be shared among members. It also coordinates the promotion of Island apples as a healthy and nutritious food choice. The Association acts as a unified voice for apple growers when dealing with the Provincial and Federal Departments of Agriculture, other stakeholders in the apple industry, the media and the public.
