Food Processor Expanding in Perth County - McGuinty Government Supports Agri-Food Industry, Creates Jobs
Ontario's agri-food industry continues to grow with the expansion of Parmalat Canada's Perth County plant.
With support from Ontario's Rural Economic Development Program, Parmalat Canada is installing new, state-of-the-art cream cheese production and packaging equipment at its Mitchell plant. This 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.
"Our government's support for this project is providing new
opportunities for Ontario's dairy farmers, new jobs for Ontarians
and strengthening our province's agri-food sector. By helping our
food processors innovate and expand, we are growing our province's
economy and providing good food for Ontario families."
"This project is not only helping one of our valued food processors
grow and remain competitive, it's stimulating the local economy
and creating jobs our families can count on. It's a great example
of our government's commitment to successful rural communities and
a thriving agri-food sector."
"Our Mitchell Ontario plant will increase productivity and
capacity by installing innovative case packaging equipment in its
cream cheese production lines. With support from Ontario's Rural
Economic Development Program our Mitchell plant will have the
capability to increase the current volume of cream cheese products
over two times current production levels, adding another shift resulting
in the addition of 12 employees."
