The federal government is offering financial support to a few food businesses in Quebec.
The government today announced $225,500 in financial support for Les Aliments St-Germain, Inc, Montérégie, Que., that specializes in the processing, distribution and sale of roasted nut products and the sale of confectionery items.
This repayable contribution will enable the family-run business to acquire and install an automated packaging system, a high-precision electronic scale and mixing and cooling tables, as well as refit production areas. The project will lead to the creation and maintenance of two jobs.
Additionally, Bleuet Nordic (Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean), a business specializing in the secondary processing of wild blueberries, is receiving a repayable contribution of $666,400. This support from the Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions (CED) will enable the business to expand its factory, acquire new processing equipment and conduct a study on enhancing the performance of its dryer.
La Maison du Bleuet, a business offering products made from organic wild blueberries, is also receiving a repayable contribution of $359,000. CED’s support will enable the business to acquire and fit out a building and purchase production equipment, and will lead to the creation of six jobs.
