Feds stimulate new flavours at wine processor

by Press release | Apr 2012

April 17, 2012, Hillier, Ont – An Ontario wine company is expanding its customer base and potential for export sales thanks to a $42,000 boost from Canada’s Economic Action Plan.

The investment was announced at Hinterland Wine Company Ltd. and will be put toward the purchase and installation of new sparkling wine processing equipment at its facility in Hillier, Ont.

The new equipment will provide Hinterland with product quality control, enhanced wine flavour, and shorter production times, helping the company to increase its sales and better meet customer demand. This in turn will boost the demand for Canadian-sourced grapes, supporting local farmers.

“We are thrilled to have received the API investment, enabling us to purchase highly specialized sparkling wine equipment,” said Vicki Samaras, president, Hinterland Wine. “As a small family-run business, this program allows us to focus on growth while continuing to specialize in what we believe to be a world-class product.”

This repayable contribution is being delivered by the Agricultural Flexibility Fund (AgriFlexibility) through the AgriProcessing Initiative, a five-year, up to $50-million initiative designed to enhance the competitiveness of the agri-processing sector in Canada. It provides support to existing companies for projects that involve the adoption of innovative and new-to-company manufacturing technologies and processes that are essential to sustaining and improving the sector’s position in today’s global marketplace.
