Government of Canada supports poultry processor in Kings County

Berwick, Nova Scotia – Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada

On behalf of the Honourable Lawrence MacAulay, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, Kody Blois, Member of Parliament for Kings–Hants, announced an investment of up to $2,932,500 for Eden Valley Poultry under the Supply Management Processing Investment Fund.

This investment will help Eden Valley Poultry modernize its processing and wastewater systems, purchase and install new packaging equipment, and adopt an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. Through these improvements, the company will be able to increase processing capacity and efficiency through automation.

The Supply Management Processing Investment Fund helps processors of supply-managed commodities increase their competitiveness and resilience in the face of evolving markets. The Fund is part of the Government of Canada's commitment to support processors in these sectors to address the impacts of recent international trade agreements.

The Government of Canada will continue to preserve, protect, and defend Canada's supply management system. The system supports the livelihood of producers by providing the opportunity to receive fair returns on their labour and investments, while consumers benefit from a steady supply of high-quality products.
