-- posted July 26, 2019 --
The Food Centre received $3.5 million through the Regional Innovation Ecosystems program to expand its facilities and install equipment to develop and manufacture new products from plant-based ingredients. The project directly supports Saskatchewan’s value-added food processing industry. It is expected to assist 30 small- to medium-sized businesses in its first 18 months of operations.
The Food Centre received $1M to provide business support to women entrepreneurs in the food processing sector. The Food Centre has launched its AWESOME program under this funding to grow and advance women-owned businesses in the food processing sector through specific business development services.
