Feb. 18, 2010 – Grand River Foods in Cambridge will be able to buy
equipment to become more efficient with the help of repayable loans
from the federal government.
The poultry processor received a loan of almost $1.2 million from the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario.
The company is overhauling its technology to become more productive and competitive.
The company employs about 300 people at its processing facility and administration offices in Cambridge and 150 people at a poultry slaughtering plant in Beamsville.
The company recently closed a poultry slaughtering facility in Paris. It had been processing two different sizes of birds at the two plants, but with new equipment, the company can handle all the birds at the facility in Beamsville.
Twenty jobs will be added at the Cambridge plant this year when the company purchases and installs frying and blending equipment. The new equipment will increase efficiency and speed production.
