CANADA The Canadian government has announced an investment in the Greenhouse Juice Company of up to CAD6.3 million to equip their Mississauga facility with the latest cold pateurisation technologies which will increase the shelf life of the company’s organic juices whilst maintaining freshness and nutrition. Canada’s food and beverage sector is seen by the government as “an important driver of economic growth in Canada.” The investment enables Greenhouse Juice to expand into their new Mississauga facility, generating hundreds of job opportunities in the region. Importantly with the facility expansion and the adoption of the cold-pateurisation technology, Greenhouse Juice will purchase significantly more Canadian-grown fruits and vegetables, and produce juice for both Canadian and international markets.
“The expansion here in Mississauga is great news for Ontario, and our Government is committed to making investments in innovative businesses that help create jobs and grow the economy,” said Navdeep Bains, the Minister of Innovation, Science and Economic Development. “This technology represents a new way forward in Canadian food processing that will help bring fresh, high quality products to consumers and new jobs to Mississauga.”
