November 1, 2010, Toronto – The Canadian Restaurant and Foodservices Association has named Ron Reaman as its new vice president for Ontario.

With more than five years of experience as CRFA’s vice president of federal government affairs, Reaman has worked on a number of key national issues such as domestic agriculture policy, food supply and international trade, as well as food safety, health and nutrition. Most recently, Reaman was a member of the Health Canada led Multi-stakeholder Sodium Working Group that delivered its National Sodium Reduction Strategy Report to the federal Minister of Health.

“I am very excited about the opportunity to bring my national experience to the provincial policy arena,” said Reaman. “The restaurant industry is a key player in Ontario’s future growth strategy and CRFA members must be recognized for the critical contributions they make to the province’s economy and culture.”

Garth Whyte, CRFA president and CEO, said, “Ron is recognized and respected for his national policy work, which he will be able to leverage and bring considerable insight to Canada’s largest province. I am very pleased that he has agreed to take on the challenge of leading CRFA in Ontario and am confident he will continue to grow our presence as a partner in Ontario’s success.”
