Government of Canada Invests More Than $1.5 Million in Lac-Mégantic Cheese Processor

Jun 16, 2022

Government of Canada Invests More Than $1.5 Million in Lac-Mégantic Cheese Processor Government of Canada Invests More Than $1.5 Million in Lac-Mégantic Cheese Processor OTTAWA, ON – The Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food, the Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau announced an investment of $1,577,028 to Fromagerie La Chaudière in Lac-Mégantic, Quebec, under the Dairy Processing Investment Fund. This funding has helped the locally owned cheese processor increase its production by 25 per cent while reducing its environmental footprint. Fromagerie La Chaudière produces a wide range of fresh and aged cheeses, processed cheese, organic cheeses and butter for sale. The investment allowed the company to install an automated production line to respond to consumer demand for its firm unripened cheese twists called Déguédine. The increase in the plant’s production, which now runs 24 hours a day, six days a week, created new positions in the staff of over 200. The company also introduced a reverse osmosis water treatment technology to remove most of the water from the whey that is a by-product of cheese production. Before the technology was introduced this past January, Fromagerie la Chaudière was using 25 trucks a week to transport the whey to another processor. The company now transports the concentrated whey with just one truck a day, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and cutting transportation costs. The $100-million Dairy Processing Investment Fund was created to help Canadian processors modernize their businesses and improve their productivity and competitiveness. The fund helped dairy processors adapt to market changes resulting from the implementation of the Canada-European Union Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA). While the program expired in 2021, the Government of Canada continues to help processors in supply managed sectors modernize through the six-year, $292-million Supply Management Processing Investment Fund announced this year. Quick Facts Fromagerie la Chaudière is a family-owned business founded in Lac Mégantic in 1976. Its cheese product line includes cheddar, gouda, Swiss, mozzarella, unripened firm cheese and organic cheeses. The company also sells processed cheese spreads, sticks and twists, as well as butter. The five-year Dairy Processing Investment Fund has helped 105 processors modernize and grow. In 2021, Quebec’s dairy processing sector had sales of $5.7 billion and directly employed more than 10,000 people. In the same year, Quebec dairy farmers produced 3.5 billion litres of milk, with farm-gate sales of $2.7 billion. The demand for Canadian dairy products remains strong, with a 10.9 per cent increase in raw milk production over the last five years, and over $7.4 billion in farm cash receipts in 2021. There are over 500 dairy processors in Canada. In 2021, these processors had sales of $16.1 billion and directly employed nearly 27,000 people.
