The CTCPA carries out some professional representation tasks, in particular in French and European public situations.
Knowing the stakes and the technical constraints to which professionals are held responsible, the CTCPA has a legitimate knowledge needed to represent canned goods and dehydrated foods manufactures and has a better idea concerning the decisions made at this level. This is also a means to better anticipate future evolutions, in particular the rules to which companies in concerned sectors are subject. The CTCPA intervenes during a crisis situation by its technical approach. The CTCPA supports a company in the case of an individual crisis that could potentially have an impact on the entire profession, as well as supporting professional federations when the all of the profession is touched.
