Who We Are
Founded in 1958 as a non-profit educational association, OFFA’s main objective was and still is to provide a common forum through a series of educational events that allow our members to exchange ideas and information, make connections and build contacts with like-minded professionals. The organization strives to provide members with hot topics and industry updates in food manufacturing in Ontario specific to food safety that will affect your business. Collectively, we offer student scholarships, provide an informative and timely newsletter and recognize excellence through industry-associated awards. The association is also proud to be affiliated with the International Association for Food Protection (IAFP).
