The Alberta government is investing $2.85 million in an expansion of Siwin Foods’ food processing facility in Edmonton, Alta., a Dec. 1 news release said. The funds are coming from Alberta’s Investment and Growth Fund.
“I am so pleased that an Alberta-based success like Siwin Foods has chosen to continue expanding here, creating jobs and delivering high-quality products to the tables of customers around the world,” Brian Jean, Alberta minister of jobs, economy and northern development, said in the release.
Siwin Foods plans to build a 70,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility in Edmonton. The release said the new 70,000 square foot facility is designed to be an energy-efficient and waste-reducing processing facility. Siwin Foods has a growing customer base ranging from Costco to Sobeys to Walmart.
“Moving into a new facility will allow Siwin Foods to expand its production footprint and provide better access to the global market for its ready-to-eat and quick-cooking meal solutions,” the release noted.Click here to see more...
