Halifax – Food producers looking to expand their product line or improve their processing can access funding from the 2024-25 Value-Adding Equipment Program.

Value-added refers to the addition of ingredients or processes to produce higher-valued food products or improve the way a food product is made. Funding will be available to agricultural food processing businesses doing value-added processing on-site.

The Value-Adding Equipment Program is designed to help build capacity, competitiveness and growth in the Nova Scotia agriculture sector by providing funding to adopt new and improved processes and technologies.

Now in its second year, the program is funded through the Sustainable Canadian Agricultural Partnership. Last year, the program helped 38 value-added food producers enhance their production.


Applications are open until June 30 and are available at Value-adding Equipment Program – Government of Nova Scotia, Canada.
