$5 million investment from the federal government

The Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, the Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, and the Member of Parliament for Vaudreuil–Soulanges, Peter Schiefke, highlighted an investment of up to $5 million that helped CBCo Alliance increase capacity at its new hog processing facility in Les Cèdres, Quebec.

This investment, made through the Emergency Processing Fund, supported infrastructure upgrades and the purchase and installation of advanced processing equipment to increase productivity and boost production capacity. According to the company’s projection, it will have the capacity to process up to 20,000 hogs per week by 2024.

The new plant has been in operation since November 2020 and is expected to create a total of 250 jobs when operating at full capacity.

This is a significant development for the local economy near Vaudreuil, and a big help to the processing capacity challenges we have experienced over the past number of years. With this investment, CBCo Alliance is setting up a state-of-the-art facility to increase hog processing capacity here in Quebec, which helps our producers continue to deliver quality pork products to our grocery shelves. This project not only responds to challenges brought on by COVID-19, but also positions the industry for a stronger future.” said the Minister.
