Expanding Ontario’s Meat Processing Sector


New funding will increase efficiency and meat processing capacity

The governments of Canada and Ontario are investing $127,000 to support a research initiative by Meat and Poultry Ontario (MPO) to identify opportunities that will increase Ontario’s meat processing capacity.

The funding will support MPO’s strategic plan to build capacity within the province’s meat processing sector, especially in the North, by pairing skills development with innovative technologies that aim to increase efficiency and capacity across the industry.

“Ontario’s meat processing sector is an important contributor to Ontario’s economy,” said Ernie Hardeman, MPP for Oxford and Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, during an address to the annual general meeting of the Beef Farmers of Ontario. “Today’s announcement is part of our government’s plan to support projects that increase processing capacity and help our local meat sector continue to grow.”

This announcement is the latest part of our PC government’s plan to support projects that increase processing capacity and help our local meat sector continue to grow, and builds on other supports extended to the province’s food processing and agri-food sector during COVID-19.
