The Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, announced an investment of $264,000 in support of dairy processor La Maison d’affinage Maurice Dufour.
The investment, made through the Dairy Processing Investment Fund (DPIF), will help to increase pasteurization capacity, improve the whey filtration process and acquire a vacuum packaging system.
