Vegetable Processor Expanding in Tecumseh - McGuinty Government Supports Agri-Food Industry, Strathroy-area Farmers to Benefit
Ontario is helping a leading vegetable processor expand to meet growing demand and support local farmers.
A strong agri-food industry is part of the McGuinty government's plan to create jobs and opportunities that will grow the province's economy.
"The McGuinty government's support for this project is expanding
the market for Bonduelle Ontario and contributing to the success
of Ontario's agri-food industry. By helping our quality food processors
grow their business, we are strengthening our province's economy
and creating jobs for Ontario families."
"The innovations we're supporting at Bonduelle Ontario mean
that more of the delicious vegetables we grow right here in Strathroy
will end up on our tables and forks. There is no doubt that this
project is strengthening our region's agri-food sector and creating
new opportunities for local farmers."
"Our government's investment in this project is ensuring the
continued success of one of our leading vegetable processors, supporting
local farmers and protecting jobs for countless men and women in
the Tecumseh area. It's a great example of how we're strengthening
our rural communities by growing our agri-food sector."
"With government support in place, we'll be able to remain
competitive by lowering our production costs and increasing our
productivity. This means we'll continue to work with local farmers
to bring quality, Ontario-grown vegetables to market, which is good
news all around."
