Processing

From global companies to the thriving entrepreneurial spirit of small agri-food businesses like Pepsi-Co and Lantic Inc., Taber is increasingly being recognized as a prominent hub for food processing. With major processing activities that include hogs, beef, sheep, poultry, potatoes, canola, sugar beets, seed cleaning and other smaller value added food-processing industries, Taber is a land of opportunity for the food processing industry. 

Known as the “Market Garden of Alberta” for its versatile crops, abundance of sunshine, fertile soil and extensive irrigation system, Taber’s economy thrives as an agricultural heartland in southern Alberta. With primary crops that include sugar beets, potatoes, onions, peas, carrots, wheat, flax/barley, corn, beans, oats and canola/mustard, there is tremendous diversity to draw from. 

In terms of location and infrastructure, Taber has a great deal in place to support the robust requirements for water and wastewater of food processing. In addition, low costs for ingredients, packaging, direct and indirect labour, utilities, land, building, construction and taxes make Taber the ideal place to establish or expand a food processing business.
