Governments support improved efficiencies in value-added processing
Ottawa – The federal government and the province of Saskatchewan have announced $10 million in funding over five years for the Saskatchewan Lean Improvements in Manufacturing (SLIM) program.
Through the SLIM program, funding will go towards helping Saskatchewan processors adopt best practices, new technologies and processes. By finding efficiencies and improving production in processing facilities, the government hopes to grow value-added agrifood processing in the province.
The program will also provide funding for eligible processors to conduct lean gap analysis and identify process improvements, as well as the technology, facility improvements and training needed to improve productivity and efficiency.
