Canada’s Min­is­ter of Agri­cul­ture and Agri-Food, Marie-Claude Bibeau, vis­ited the St-Al­bert Cheese Co-oper­a­tive on Mon­day morn­ing, where she an­nounced an in­vest­ment of up to $1.5 mil­lion un­der the Dairy Pro­cess­ing In­vest­ment Fund.

The min­istry says, “The fund­ing will be used to mod­ern­ize equip­ment that will help the com­pany im­prove its pro­duc­tiv­ity and com­pet­i­tive­ness.”

The min­is­ter says that the funds will en­hance plant oper­a­tions and help optimize the value of its by-prod­ucts.

“This new equip­ment will help re­duce the im­pact of power out­ages and ef­fec­tively man­age the per­for­mance of ven­ti­la­tion and hu­mid­ity lev­els so re­frig­er­a­tion in the ware­houses runs ef­fi­ciently, en­abling the com­pany to in­crease the volume of milk prod­uct it pro­cesses while re­duc­ing pro­duc­tion costs,” she said.

Glen­garry-Prescott-Russell MP Fran­cis Drouin added that, “Canada’s grow­ing dairy sec­tor plays an im­por­tant role in On­tario’s eco­nomic growth. With mod­ern equip­ment de­signed to boost pro­cess­ing ef­fi­ciency and pro­duc­tion, St-Al­bert Cheese Co-op will be well po­si­tioned to seize new mar­ket op­por­tu­ni­ties and re­spond to the grow­ing de­mands of the sec­tor.”
