Supporting local agri-food processors is part of the Ontario government's economic plan to deliver on its number-one priority to grow the economy and create jobs. The four-part provincial plan includes investing in talent and skills, including helping more people get and create the jobs of the future by expanding access to high-quality college and university education. The plan is making the largest investment in public infrastructure in Ontario's history and investing in a low-carbon economy driven by innovative, high-growth, export-oriented businesses. The plan is also helping working Ontarians achieve a more secure retirement.
“Ontario is supporting food and beverage businesses to help continue to grow Ontario’s strong agri-food sector. Having Bacardi Canada’s bottling operation anchored in our province sends a clear signal to domestic and foreign markets that Ontario is a prime location where food and beverage processing companies can invest, expand and be successful.”
