Ontario approves over $5.4 million in projects to improve food processing, safety

The Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, in partnership with Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada, have published a list of more than 75 food and food processing projects funded through the Canadian Agricultural Partnership.

Approximately $5.4 million in projects have been approved, covering improving food safety, increasing labour productivity, and enabling better access to markets.

“Targeted investments into the innovation of our food processors such as these ensure our food supply chain remains strong and competitive for years to come,” says Neil Ellis, Member of Parliament for Bay of Quinte and Parliamentary Secretary to the federal Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food. “This is about serving our communities from both levels of government, helping to give a boost to our local food businesses and address some of the challenges around labour we are seeing right now.”

Projects range from several hundred thousands for new or improved packaging or processing equipment, to thousands for food safety upgrades to abattoirs, and on to just a few hundred dollars in professional costs for navigating marketing or administrative barriers to growth.
