Province Boosts Oxford Frozen Foods
Nova Scotia Business Inc. (NSBI) has approved a business development incentive for Oxford Frozen Foods.
NSBI will provide an innovation rebate to assist the company with an 8.5 million dollar improvement to its packaging line in an effort to increase efficiency and production levels to meet an ever-growing demand from export customers.
The Oxford company is already the world's largest supplier of quality, frozen, wild blueberries.
Oxford Foods will spend $8,540,000 and when done, NSBI will contribute $2,135,000, about a quarter of the capital investment.
The Innovation Rebate Program provides financial incentives to enable a company to increase innovation capacity or adoption of new technologies and business processes.
While famous for its sales of wild blueberries, Oxford Frozen Foods also processes carrots and battered products.
