But Ted McKechnie sees huge potential for Waterloo Region and the Guelph-Wellington area to also become a world class food processing technology cluster.
McKechnie, chief executive of Canada’s Technology for Food, explored that potential during a recent trade mission to Germany and the Netherlands. His organization helps food processors find technology solutions that will save them money or add to their production capacity.
