Support for local cheese processing business in Racine, Quebec
“The construction of a new cheese factory here in Racine is excellent news for the region. This means more opportunities for our dairy producers and more of your excellent cheeses for consumers from near and far. I am proud that our government has contributed to this initiative, because it is exactly what we want for our regions. I would like to congratulate the whole Fromagerie Nouvelle France team for 10 years of growth and wish you many more decades of innovation and discoveries.”
- The Honourable Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of Agriculture and Agri-Food
“I am very grateful to Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada for recognizing the potential of our team over the past 10 years. The "Buy Local" concept is also part of the commitment of our government to small artisans like us. Sheep milk production represents a significant and growing niche. It is our identity and our artisanal know-how that shines throughout the country.”
- Marie-Chantal Houde, cheesemaker and co-owner of Fromagerie Nouvelle France.
