Agri-Food Innovation Centre opens at USask

January 31, 2018

A new, $17.5M Agri-Food Innovation Centre has been officially opened on the University of Saskatchewan’s campus. The facility will reportedly expand the Saskatchewan Food Industry Development Centre’s capacity to develop and process products. The space includes a food processing incubator, labs, and a pilot plant. “The Government of Canada is committed to growing a strong economy,” said Canada’s Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale. “Centres of innovation, like this one in Saskatoon, will play a key role in creating jobs and new opportunities for Canadian farmers and agri-businesses, growing the economy and the middle class.”
