Canada's Protein Industries Supercluster
Based in the Prairie Provinces, the Protein Industries Supercluster will increase the value of key Canadian crops — such as canola, wheat and pulses — and serve growing markets in North America, Asia and Europe for plant-based meat alternatives and new food products. Through plant genomics that improve nutrition, novel processing technology and digital solutions from farm to fork, this Supercluster will help Canada capture premium markets for its agribusiness and feed the world.
Regional concentration: Prairie provinces
Technology focus: Agri-food enabling technologies, including genomics, processing, and information technology (IT)
Expected economic impact
|GDP impact over 10 years (in billions)||Job creation over 10 years|
