The Product Development Program provides funding for prototype and product development services to food, beverage and other agri-processing value-added companies. The client will work with the Food Centre to determine which service provider is most appropriate to provide the prototype and product development services. In some situations, the Food Centre may be suited to provide this service. When product or technology development activities fall outside of the Food Centre’s capabilities or capacities, pathfinding services will be provided to identify a more appropriate third-party organization to meet client needs.
The program is designed to:
- Increase value-added revenues;
- Increase value-added processing of Saskatchewan agriculture products;
- Develop new value-added products, prototypes and processes; and
- Expand and grow value-added business.
This program is funded through the Sustainable Canadian Agricultural Partnership and is administered by the Food Centre. For more information and to apply for the program, please visit the Food Centre Product Development Program web page.
