This complex was completed in 2006 at a cost of $10 million and is the flagship of the region’s biofood industry. Made up of seven separate plants and a group of shared spaces totalling some 30,000 sq. ft., the biofood incubator boasts a wealth of state-of-the art equipment.
The facility provides companies with a broad range of services to help them develop new products or start production on a preindustrial scale.
The CDBQ – QAIC holds provincial permits for dairy product production, meat preparation (C-1), seafood product preparation (FC), and industrial wine production, among others. Subject to conditions stipulated by standards, laws, and regulations, companies can therefore start commercializing their products at the incubator.
