Founded in 2014, Wilder Harrier is a Montréal-based company that specializes in producing pet food using protein derived from alternative sources.
The Scientific Research and Experimental Development (SR&ED) tax incentives helped Wilder Harrier contribute to sustainability efforts in Canada. By choosing innovative and environmentally responsible ingredients, such as insect protein or fruit and vegetable pulp recovered from the circular economy, the company provides Canadians with sustainable and environmentally friendly pet food options.
Wilder Harrier is not only grateful for the SR&ED Program’s financial support, but also for its helpful employees who provided guidance on the company’s research and development (R&D) activities.
When asked how the SR&ED Program has contributed to their R&D projects, Paul Shenouda, founder and chief information officer, replied:
Concretely, this program has allowed us to fund the development of the science behind Wilder Harrier's products, which are now a commercial success. This financial support has enabled us to significantly accelerate our technical development and has freed up funds for the commercialization of our products. By sharing clear best practices, the program has also served as a guide for the development of our SR&ED strategy.
The SR&ED Program offers tax incentives to encourage Canadian businesses of all sizes and in all sectors to conduct R&D in Canada. Think you might qualify? Learn more about our eligibility requirements and see our list of services and tools to help you get started.
