The Agri-Commodity Management Association was formed in 2010 as a result of more than two years of strategic planning between Pork Nova Scotia (PNS), the Nova Scotia Cattle Producers (NSCP), the Sheep Producers Association of Nova Scotia (SPANS), the Nova Scotia Federation of Agriculture (NSFA) and the Nova Scotia Department of Agriculture (NSDA).
All of these groups realized the importance of professional and administrative support for small commodity groups in the Province. By working through ACMA, the member organizations can move forward without relying solely on the volunteers of their Boards.
The vision of ACMA is to...
Be the leading provider of quality professional services to farmers and the farm community in Atlantic Canada.
While each of the commodity groups work with ACMA to reduce administrative overhead, reduce and eliminate duplicate functions, and form synergies by sharing information, all groups remain autonomous.
