Ottawa, Ontario – Canada’s dairy processors sustain good jobs across the country, and the safe, high-quality products they supply are respected and enjoyed by Canadians.
Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food Marie-Claude Bibeau announced today an investment totalling $164,000 for two projects under the Dairy Processing Investment Fund to enhance the competitiveness and efficiency of Mountainoak Cheese Ltd.
Under the first project, $128,734 will support the purchase and installation of a hose station, walk-in cooler, automatic lift, cheese packaging machine, and an upgraded water system. It is expected the new equipment will reduce production cost, improve water use and waste water management, and increase annual cheese production and annual usage of milk.
The second project, valued at $35,700, will support the purchase and installation of a cheese cutting machine. The machine is expected to improve competitiveness and efficiency, as it meets customer requirements for consistent product weight and size, as well as reduce product waste and production cost.
The Dairy Processing Investment Fund, valued at $100 million, is designed to help dairy processors modernize their operations, improving productivity and competitiveness.Source : Government of Canada
