Bibeau finally fills dairy commission vacancy

Shikha Jain has been appointed a director of the Canadian Dairy Commission for a four-year term.

Jain is the chief executive officer of Green Energy Trading Corporation (GET Corp.), a green tech organization that supports climate farming and sustainability in the dairy industry, said federal Agriculture Minister Marie-Claude Bibeau in announcing the appointment.

She is the first woman to serve on the CDC board of directors. The board has had vacancies for a long time, including during two controversial price hikes for milk, and support prices for butter and skim milk powder.

Through her work with numerous cross-jurisdictional stakeholders within the sector, Ms. Jain brings extensive experience in strategic and operational planning and is recognized as a trusted and collaborative leader, Bibeau said in a news release.
