June 29, 2012, Mississauga, Ont. – Wladyslaw Lizon, member of parliament for Mississauga East–Cooksville, on behalf of Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz, announced yesterday an investment of more than $240,000 to S. Gumpert Co. of Canada to purchase and install new packaging equipment in its facility in Mississauga, Ontario.
 
“This investment will help S. Gumpert Company of Canada enhance its productivity and increase demand for our farmers’ products, benefiting not only the processing sector but the entire agriculture industry,” Lizon said.
 
S. Gumpert specializes in products such as cake mixes, icing, and pie fillings for use in the baking industry. The investment will be used to purchase new packaging equipment. Currently, the company must transport some of its products to a co-packer, as its equipment does not have the capacity to package all of its mixes. The new and faster equipment will be able to handle larger volumes of food and enable the company to package everything on site.
 
These improvements will enhance the company’s productivity and competitiveness, increase domestic and export sales, and reduce transportation and production costs. The project will also support the creation of new jobs and will result in an increased demand by the company for agricultural commodities such as flour and shortening, which in turn will benefit Canadian farmers.
