Hanover Business Gets Food Fund Money

The province’s Local Food Fund made it into Hanover.

$472,780 was announced yesterday to increase the variety of Ontario craft beer at MacLean’s Ales. ┬áThe money will help build a new state-of-the-art brewing facility to increase production and grow the customer base for its products, which are made with local hops, malt and barley.

The Local Food Fund and new Local Food Act are part of the Ontario government’s broader local food strategy to promote the good things that are grown, harvested and processed across the province.

Supporting the province’s agri-food industry is part of the government’s economic plan.
