The governments of Canada and Manitoba announced today that they are investing $300,000 in Assiniboine Community College to support a new Food Processing Centre for Animal Proteins (FPC) as part of the Canadian Agricultural Partnership.

The new facility will be located at the college’s Brandon campus and will host an 11-month long Food Processing certificate program. Future use of the facility will lend itself to industry training and applied research.

Maple Leaf Foods, Hylife, Manitoba Pork, UFCW Local 832 have all contributed funding as well as the Brandon Hog and Livestock Show to amass a total of $640,000 towards the construction of the facility.
