MELFORT, Sask. – The federal government is funding projects that strengthen Canada’s food system, ranging from sustainable food production and processing to less food waste.

Outcast Foods will receive $ 1.5 million for the expansion of a demonstration plant in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, and the commissioning of a new full-scale plant in Burlington, Ontario.

The two plants are projected to process up to 35,800,000 tonnes of fruit and vegetable waste by 2024, turning them into more than 4,100,000 million pounds of plant-based powdered ingredients each year.

The plant-based ingredients are sold as branded health products, as well as raw food and beverage ingredients high in nutrients, vitamins, phytochemicals and natural flavors. Agriculture Review for Friday, February 18, 2022
