The processing of meat and seafood products contributes billions of dollars to Canada’s economy each and every year. With thousands of employees from coast-to-coast, the success of these operations translates into economic prosperity for the regions they operate in.
With high industry demand however, comes potential threats and challenges to your operation’s success. Meat and seafood processers are particularly vulnerable to food safety risks and operate within strict regulatory environments. For every challenge however, there is an opportunity to overcome it and position yourself as a true leader within the meat and seafood processing space.
When people’s lives are at stake, today’s meat and seafood processors know that ensuring the safety of their products is an essential part of their success. Failing to implement and maintain internal controls, an unreliable or untested supplier or producing an unsafe product can cost your business everything – including your reputation and strategic position. We assist meat and seafood processors with several aspects of food safety, including traceability studies to identify and assess your supply chain, as well as product recall strategies in the event your business is forced to undergo a recall. In addition, we help prepare your business for any operational risk through our Enterprise Risk Services . Whether you require an emergency response plan for a physical catastrophe like a fire or natural disaster or are looking to identify and mitigate your key risks on a day-to-day basis, we help protect your people, assets, reputation and technology.
Many of the factors that impact your meat or seafood processing operation’s profitability can be out of your control – from fluctuating input costs and capitalizing on technology changes to labour challenges and retail distribution. The one area you can manage is the effectiveness and efficiency of your operations.
Our specialists work closely with you on:
While you are responsible for the successful beginning and growth of your meat or seafood processing operation, eventually you will need to transition out of the business you’ve worked hard to build. Our ExitSMART™ program is one of the most comprehensive succession planning initiatives on the market, accounting for every aspect of the succession process. We work closely with you on tax and estate planning, wealth and asset management and valuations – so your business can thrive well after you’ve left. Starting this process early can help ease the transition that much more.
No matter what stage your meat or seafood processing operation is at, MNP offers a complete suite of tax and assurance services that go well beyond traditional accounting. We work closely with our beverage processing clients to customize a tax strategy and structure that seamlessly integrates with existing business processes, providing you with added value. Our unique approach to both tax and assurance helps you control costs, streamline operations, ensure compliance and cultivate opportunities for growth and expansion.
Canada’s meat and seafood plant operators are increasingly seeking opportunities – and finding success – in international markets. As you take your operation south of the border to the U.S. or perhaps seek expansion into Europe and Asia, your business will be subject to new, complex and ever-changing tax regulations. Without a proper tax structure in place, you could be subject to costly penalties and may jeopardize your international operation. We help you develop an international tax strategy that ensures compliance while minimizing your tax exposure and identifying tax-effective repatriation strategies.
