A new meat production facility will strengthen the local economy in Quinte West, creating at least 106 new jobs and supporting Ontario farmers.
With support from Ontario's Rural Economic Development Program, Canadian Blast Freezers will renovate an existing dry storage facility into a new meat processing plant. The new, state-of-the-art facility will help the organization to:
- increase their annual sales by $40 million
- develop new meat products
- create new, highly-skilled food processing jobs in the community.
- support growth opportunities for non-agricultural businesses in the area.
The new facility is expected to be ready by June 2011.
