Tuesday, August 21st, 2018 |

The Ag Action Manitoba program supports the growth and sustainability of the agri-processing sector.

 

Eligible agri-processors, including agri-food processors, agri-product processors, and abattoirs, may be eligible to apply to the following Ag Action Manitoba program activities:

 

Assurance: supports the adoption of risk mitigation strategies and best practices that improve food safety, traceability, animal welfare and biosecurity. Applications will be accepted on a first come first serve basis.

 

Capital Assets and Equipment: will assist with capital investment for modernization activities that enhance efficiency, productivity and environmental sustainability. This can include equipment purchases that support the transformation of raw inputs into value-added goods that bring new technologies or products into the production process; build more value for the processes by capturing value from waste products; and address the treatment and purification of wastewater.  Applications (investments over $1 million) will be accepted on a first come first serve basis. (Deadline for investments under $1 million was August 1, 2018.)

 

Market Development: supports market research projects, market access training, scale up production, product development, labeling and packaging, sensory and shelf life studies, and participation in tradeshows. Applications will be accepted on a first come first serve basis.

 

Research and Innovation: consists of two funding streams – basic and applied research and development, and strategic innovation investment related to capacity-building. Check our website regularly for calls of letters of intent.
