Alberta Barley and the Alberta Wheat Commission announced at the end of January they will be moving ahead with a shared management team ...

Jason Lenz, Alberta Barley Chair, says it is a joint management team in an office that they have shared for over four years now.



Meanwhile, Lenz says the revised Trans Pacific Partnership deal that Canada and the 10 other remaining countries agreed to last month has huge potential for the barley industry.



Lenz adds Alberta Barley has been following the on-going North American Free Trade Agreement discussions very closely.



Tom Steve will serve as General Manager of both the Alberta Barley and the Alberta Wheat commissions and lead the transition to a new operating model reporting to their boards.
