CAMA Mentorship Program
CAMA’s roots are founded in networking, providing educational opportunities and making connections within the Canadian agri-food and marketing industry.

Livestock Water Recycling
Manure handling and storage has devastating economic and environmental impacts. Pollution from farms can affect the quality of the air, soil and groundwater in local communities. Health issues from excess manure can cause sickness in works and lost productivity in animals. Expansion and succession planning are often not feasible. However, Livestock Water Recycling creates value for the food production industry by reducing the expense and environmental impact of waste liquids.
If you’ve never heard of aquaponics before - don’t feel bad. The modern aquaponic farm is a relatively new concept, where fish are farmed in large, indoor tanks and their waste is filtered out of the water and upgraded through a series of natural processes. The upgraded waste is used as fertilizer for plants, which are being grown hydroponically (“without soil”) in a separate system.
Agri Marketing Application (AMA)
AMA is the newest course in the Agribusiness Marketing Management program. The program has been designed for agribusiness professionals who have already completed Marketing to Farm Businesses (or the equivalent) and Strategic Agri Marketing. AMA is the third and final course in CAMA’s Certificate in Agri Marketing.
Dairy Distillery is an Almonte, Ontario based start-up that develops technology to transform excess lactose from dairy production into ethanol. Their first product, Vodkow, is a vodka that has attracted international acclaim thanks to its smooth taste and strong sustainability story. A year after its launch in November 2018, Vodkow is available province-wide in Ontario, Alberta and Nova Scotia. The company is now working to expand its technology to fuel ethanol production.
