Meat Processor Expanding In Hamilton Region - McGuinty Government Supports Local Food Processors, Creates Good Jobs
Ontario is helping a food processor in the Hamilton area expand its production to meet growing demand, support local farmers and create good jobs.
With support from Ontario's Rural Economic Development Program, Gourmet Meats will make upgrades and install new equipment at its existing Mount Hope facility. These improvements will help the company:
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.
"We're proud to be investing in small meat processors, such
as Gourmet Meats, who provide us with fresh, local, quality meats
we all enjoy. By giving these processors the tools they need to
succeed and grow, we're strengthening Ontario's agri-food industry
and growing our economy."
"We appreciate the help the Rural Economic Development Program
has given to our business. It has helped us to move in new directions.
With the help of the new panels and refrigeration it makes us
move effective in how we do our production."
