Environment and Infrastructure

When building or expanding your food processing plant, you'll need to know about access to water, energy, waste, communications and transportation systems. You'll also need to know about environmental and other regulations.

The Business and Investment Development Unit supports new value-added food processing and bioproducts investment needs, providing expertise in the areas of competitive research, training, regulations, innovation, infrastructure and marketing. The Unit also works with site selectors and municipalities in securing appropriate sites for food companies investing in Ontario.
