Toronto ON, May 11, 2011 – Choosing SIAL Canada 2011 – an international tradeshow with 200,000 visitors from more than 200 countries – for its launch, the newly formed Ontario Food Cluster is declaring an increased hunger to attract more agri-food firms outside Canada to join or expand an existing 2,500 food and beverage companies in the province. Those companies boast manufacturing revenue approaching $34 billion and help employ 210,000 industry employees, researchers, innovators and collaborators who have built a stellar reputation for reliable, sustainable sources of agricultural raw materials, state-of-the-art automated food processing methods, and world-class food safety standards.
