The amended New Entrant Program (NEP) Guide is now uploaded to the BCMMB NEP Program page. The purpose of this amendment is to provide further details regarding the policies of the newly introduced New Entrant Program Organic (NEPO) stream, and the additional documentations required to express intent to produce organic milk.
It is to be noted that due to logistical constraints, the Board is currently only accepting applications from existing organic freight zones, which are Fraser Valley and Okanagan. The Board will be exploring opportunities to establish new organic freight zones in the future.
Any questions about organic freight zones and NEPO can be directed to Intishar Jashim at firstname.lastname@example.org
