Funds to Establish Vegetable Cold Storage & Packing Facilities in NL



Spruce Meadow Farms, near Happy Valley-Goose Bay, will receive $250,000 in provincial funding under the Regional Vegetable Cold Storage Development Program, and $242,975 under the federal-provincial Canadian Agricultural Partnership, to construct a regional cold storage and packaging facility for Labrador.


Southwestern Newfoundland Farmers Group Ltd, a cooperative of seven farmers from the Southwest Coast region of the island portion of the province, will receive $750,000 in provincial funding under the Regional Vegetable Cold Storage Development Program to help establish a new vegetable storage and secondary processing facility in Robinsons.


Establishing cooperative cold storage facilities in these regions is intended to give producers the infrastructure they need to increase production and improve vegetable quality and food self-sufficiency in Newfoundland and Labrador.
