Mariposa Dairy is refurbishing and modernising its existing food processing facility to accommodate more packaging flexibility, higher processing speeds, and better materials handling capacity will help expand their production line of goat cheeses.

The refurbishment is being met with a C$208,000 grant from Rural Economic Development Program.

This expansion will create up to 21 news jobs, retain more than 50 positions, support local farmers and strengthen the Kawartha Lakes region, a report on Flex News says.

A strong agri-food industry is part of the Open Ontario plan to create jobs and opportunities that will boost the province's economy.

This is the second time the business has been approved funding, having received C$172,600 to automate its manufacturing process, develop new products and upgrade workers' skills.
