The Saint-Jean-De-Matha, Que. diary processor, La Ferme Vallée Verte 1912, received an investment of $120,950 from the Dairy Processing Investment Fund (DPIF).

The investment will help to automate the company’s manufacturing system, including their packaging line for the bottling and labelling of yogurt and fluid milk. It is expected that the project will allow La Ferme Vallée Verte 1912 to increase its milk processing capacity by 130 per cent over five years and create five full-time jobs.

DPIF was designed to help the sector increase productivity and competitiveness, and help it prepare for market changes resulting from the Canada – European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA). The program provides non-repayable contributions to support projects through capital investment or access to expertise.
