4H has a New Logo

By Matthew Villeneuve

The farm group, 4H, has updated its logo for the first time in 50 years.


You may notice something new with 4H Canada.

The organization has a new logo for the first time in 50 years.

It still uses the group's iconic green clover -- but now there's a maple leaf in the center.

C-E-O Shannon Benner says the change reflects a progressive new era for the 102 year-old organization.

4H has recently implemented new programming that Benner says reflects the changing world and a growing, dynamic agricultural industry.

4H now offers members a chance to develop skills in science, technology, engineering and auto mechanics in addition to livestock based projects.

The Ontario government is looking for producer feedback on changes to the regulations governing the maple syrup sector.

The potential amendments could include making provincial grading, labelling and colour classification standards consistent with current federal requirements.

The amendments would also look at food safety, sugar content and ways to support innovative products.

The government is also looking at registering maple operations to allow for the collection of information for the industry.
