Government of Canada Supports Increased Dairy Processing at La Vache à Maillotte

LA SARRE, QC – The Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau announced today, an investment of up to $160,115 in support of dairy processor La Vache à Maillotte.

The investment, made through the Dairy Processing Investment Fund (DPIF), will help to improve the efficiency of the company’s production of fine cheese and packaging, through the purchase of production equipment and increase demand for Canadian dairy production. It is expected that the project will allow La Vache à Maillotte to increase its milk processing capacity and reduce processing costs.  

DPIF was designed to help the sector increase productivity and competitiveness, and help them 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.
