LE GARDEUR, QUEBEC--(Marketwire - Nov. 2, 2011) - The Honourable Denis Lebel, Minister of Transport, Infrastructure and Communities and Minister of the Economic Development Agency of Canada for the Regions of Quebec, announces that La Fromagerie Champêtre Inc. has been granted $295,000 in repayable funding to acquire specialized equipment, including dairy tanks, and produce a new type of cheese.

"The Government of Canada is always ready to support enterprises that, like La Fromagerie Champêtre, are making the effort to increase their productivity and become more competitive," said Minister Lebel.
