Agriculture

Agriculture – it’s one of Canada’s core industries. It has also always been one of MNP’s key areas of focus. We have invested more time and resources into understanding agriculture than any other accounting or business consulting firm in Canada.

Working with governments, as well as numerous industry and specialty groups, our Agriculture specialists have deep roots in the industry. Some come from family farm backgrounds, while others continue to operate a farm of their own; all are extremely passionate about agriculture.

Our team brings a range of specialized expertise regarding all aspects of agricultural business – from primary producers through to food & beverage processors. Learn more about our tailored service offerings above.
