Acadia receives over $915K for agri-food and beverage lab

June 27, 2017

Acadia University has received over $915K from the Nova Scotia government to support the Acadia Laboratory for Agri-food and Beverage. The funds will be used to help the lab become ISO certified, and will cover the purchase of a laboratory information management software system and additional lab equipment for comprehensive testing. An NS release states that these enhancements will mean that NS wine producers will no longer have to send their samples out of province for testing. “This investment is an important example of the ongoing commitment to support economic development in our region, particularly the growth and development of the wine/grape sector,” said Acadia President Ray Ivany. “Nova Scotia wines and winemakers continue to earn worldwide accolades and Acadia is proud to be part of this story.” NS
