Filomena Tassi, minister responsible for the Federal Economic Development Agency for Southern Ontario, and Windsor-Tecumseh MP Irek Kusmierczyk announced the investment for Cedar Valley Selections Inc.”
“The funding is expected to improve their manufacturing capabilities.”
“Cedar Valley Selections Inc. in Oldcastle, is a family-owned manufacturer of ready-to-eat salad dressings and pita chips. This $375,000 investment, through the Jobs and Growth Fund (JGF), will help Cedar Valley buy new equipment to improve its production capacity and meet the demand for its ready-to-make foods.
“The funding received from FedDev Ontario could not have come at a better time in our journey as we grow Cedar Valley. With increasing distribution and demand, we’ve had to invest in new automated systems to help improve our production capacity, employee safety and product quality,” said Ameen Fadel, founder and president of Cedar Valley Selections Inc.
The project aims to help the company…boost local supply chain spending and create five new jobs in the Windsor region.”
