Manufacturer’s Scholarship Awards & Recognition Night

Thank you for joining us for the 24th Annual Manufacturer’s Scholarship Awards & Recognition Night. See you in May 2020! 

ABOUT US

Southwestern Ontario is an agricultural heartland, home to 35,000 farms producing a wide variety of raw materials and ingredients. The region’s fertile soil and unrivalled access to fresh water have welcomed global food processing leaders like Dr. Oetker, The Original Cakerie and most recently, Maple Leaf Foods. In London, food processing is the 2nd largest manufacturing subsector and the fastest growing, employing approximately 7,000 at more than 60 companies.

In recent years, a number of small-medium sized businesses have emerged in the healthy, functional food space. Vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, fermented foods (including craft beer) and ready-made ethnically diverse meals are easily identifiable niches within the subsector.

Discover how this cluster is developing innovative, high-demand products and experiencing warm reception from distribution partners in our panel discussion featuring three of London’s fastest growing, emerging food processors.

Overview

Southwestern Ontario’s premier event unites 200+ industry professionals to celebrate success and award $20,000 in scholarships to the next generation of manufacturing professionals. Please join us to support education in manufacturing and network with leaders in industry and academia.
