Reid gives grant for spe­cialty vine­gar

Stanstead Journal - - FROM PAGE ONE - Hat­ley Town­ship

Hat­ley Town­ship pro­moter Ber­trand Le­tendre has re­ceived a grant of $15,000 from the pro­vin­cial gov­ern­ment to pro­duce a wine vine­gar made from or­ganic blue­ber­ries. Or­ford MNA Pierre Reid an­nounced the grant last Thurs­day in the name of the Min­is­ter of Mu­nic­i­pal Af­fairs, Lau­rent Les­sard.

The grant comes from a mea­sure to stim­u­late the de­vel­op­ment of spe­cialty prod­ucts. Thanks to this sup­port, Mr. Le­tendre’s en­ter­prise will pro­duce a new prod­uct, di­ver­sify his present pro­duc­tion and put a prod­uct on the mar­ket that re­flects the tastes of to­day’s con­sumers. The to­tal cost of the project is eval­u­ated at $40,200.

“With this mea­sure, pro­mot­ers in our re­gion have the ex­tra fi­nan­cial re­sources to in­vest in the de­vel­op­ment of spe­cialty prod­ucts in a way that will di­ver­sify our re­gional econ­omy while de­vel­op­ing our ru­ral en­vi­ron­ment,” said Mr. Reid.
