Aurora, Ont.—Treasure Mills Inc., a health-conscious baked goods manufacturer located north of Toronto, has received $100,000 in government support to improve its operational efficiency and capacity.
The funding, part of the Growing Forward 2 program (a federal-provincial initiative in Canada’s agri-food and agri-products sectors) assisted with the installation of automated baking and washing equipment along with improvements in refrigeration and drainage systems.
“This investment has helped us to implement important technical improvements at our Aurora facility, which are helping us to better serve our customers and grow our business,” said Robert Johnson, president, Treasure Mills Inc. in a government release.
Operating in a nut- and peanut-free facility with more than 30,000 square feet of production space, the upgraded equipment has reduced Treasure Mills’ production costs by 10 per cent and increased output by 200 per cent.
