The Food Processing Energy Efficiency Project is publicly listed on the CSA CleanProjects Registry and has been 3rd party verified under ISO-14064-2 by Grant Thornton LLP. The project, undertaken by Canada's leading processor of canned and frozen vegetables, eliminates greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuel consumption and electricity production from six Ontario and Quebec based food processing plants by the implementation of energy efficient technologies at each facility. The project activity made it possible to consume less energy, therefore reducing a significant amount of emissions from being released into the atmosphere where greenhouse gases contribute to the negative effects of climate change.

The company operates seven plants in Canada, including three in Ontario’s famed Horseshoe Valley and four in the fertile St. Lawrence River Valley in Quebec. Their expertise, along with that of its highest caliber agricultural partners in the most fertile croplands in North America, guarantee products of superior quality that meet the very highest of customer standards. The company's products are marketed under the private-brand labels of major North American food distributors and supermarket chains.

Project Type

Verified Emissions Reductions are achieved from each project through verification and validation that is specific to each project that mitigates climate change.
