As part of Canada's AgriProcessing Initiative, Cardinal Meat Specialists Ltd. will receive an investment of more than $831,650 from Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada (AAFC).
This investment will help the company to buy new manufacturing equipment designed to produce a higher-quality sausage more resistant to splitting or bursting while cooking for its Brampton, Ontario plant. The company is the first to apply this technology in Canada.
Cardinal Meat Specialists produces high-quality meat products for retail markets. These business improvements will allow the company to introduce a new product to the market, increase production and sales plus support creating new jobs. Enhanced production will also equate to an increase in Cardinal's procurement of Canadian beef, pork and wheat.
This five-year initiative is designed to enhance the competitiveness of the agri-processing sector in Canada and covers a total funding of $50,342,005. It provides support to existing companies for projects involving the adoption of innovative, new-to-company manufacturing technologies and processes.
