Bonduelle receives investment for energy efficiency
The Ministry of Natural Resources is providing a $24,000 investment in Bonduelle Canada, the current world leader in ready-to-use vegetables, to reduce energy costs and improve energy efficiency as part of the government’s efforts to advance a low-carbon energy future.
The company’s St-Denis-sur-Richelieu facility will reduce energy consumption and improve its financial and environmental performance through a process integration study that will recommend energy-efficiency improvements. The modernization project for the plant will help improve industrial energy efficiency in Canada by reducing greenhouse gas emissions.
Federal funding is provided by the Energy Efficiency for Industry Program, which offers financial assistance to help fund Canadian industrial facilities’ energy management projects. Énergir also contributed to the project to bring the total investment to nearly $50,000.
Bonduelle Canada is a family-run company founded in 1853 by Louis Bonduelle. Bonduelle provides over 100 countries with vegetables that are preserved using natural processes.
The government continues to support green infrastructure projects that will create good jobs and advance Canada’s green future. Increasing the energy efficiency of Canada’s industrial sector is a key part of Canada’s efforts to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
