Ferme d'Hiver announces that it has received $350,000 in funding from the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC). These funds will be used primarily to accelerate the company's deployment and to finance its operations. To reach its objectives, Ferme d'Hiver proposes an innovative concept of vertical farm integrated to the infrastructures of market gardeners.
The recent inauguration of the first industrial Ferme d'Hiver farm marked an important milestone for the company, and they are delighted to have a new financial partner. "Ferme d'Hiver is in the deployment phase and the arrival of the BDC will certainly contribute to our growth. Our turnkey solution will have a great impact on the agricultural businesses we partner with, but will also be beneficial to our food autonomy. BDC quickly understood our needs and our ambitions. It is with great pleasure that we will continue our journey with them," said Andrew Pietrobon, Vice President, Finance at Ferme d'Hiver.
"BDC is particularly proud to support the growth of a company that ensures the sustainable development of food resources while protecting the planet," said Chantal Rémy, Senior Vice-President, Quebec and Atlantic and Advisory Services at BDC. "Winter Farm contributes to sustainable development and also to the innovation economy; this company has a promising future in which we are pleased to participate."
