Repentigny, Quebec – Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada
Today, Jean-Claude Poissant, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, on behalf of the Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, announced an investment of $747,542 in support of dairy processor La Fromagerie Champêtre Inc.
The investment, made through the Dairy Processing Investment Fund (DPIF), will help to produce new specialty cheeses and improve its product quality and production capacity through the purchase of state of the art equipment and expansion of the plant. It is expected that the project will allow La Fromagerie Champêtre to increase its milk processing capacity and create six full-time jobs.
DPIF was designed to help the sector increase productivity and competitiveness, and help them prepare for market changes resulting from the Canada – European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA). The program provides non-repayable contributions to support projects through capital investment or access to expertise.Source : Government of Canada
