The Ontario Food Cluster: world class opportunities for the global agri-food sector.
The Ontario Food Cluster attracts international investment to its thriving cluster of 3,000 food and beverage companies. Ontario is one of North America's largest agri-food sectors. Companies locate here because they are close to more than 200 agricultural commodities and a market of 460 million consumers.
The combined federal-provinical corporate income tax rate is almost 13% lower than the US and is competitive with G-7 countries.
The federal and provincial governments actively support the agri-food industry through financial assistance and tax incentive programs.
Leading international and major domestic food and beverage manufactures are located in Ontario to take advantage of local market assets.
