“The team at Alberta Agriculture are tremendous partners, assisting us in improving and growing our company. By developing an intimate understanding of our business, the team has been able to help us identify and address issues and opportunities. The breadth of their support has been significant. We have received assistance on matters including lean manufacturing, productivity improvement, sustainability, leadership as well as employee retention. We look to the Alberta Agriculture team for guidance and support and they are always there to lend a helping hand. They are very valuable partners in our business”
Jeff Clark, President

Cadcan Marketing and Sales Inc.
“I needed assistance in developing a new product and introducing it to the market. Our CES development officer suggested programs that would provide financial assistance and provided us with contacts to both suppliers and R&D consultants to help with the development of the products. I found the experience extremely positive and helpful in reaching our goals. I would recommend working with a CES development officer. ”

"I have always respected CES's Bioenergy Specialist's opinion on matters relating to our industry and feel that he is a valuable asset in promoting biomass systems through Alberta."
Stephen Bearss,

Shamsane Pita Ltd.
"In an ever changing marketplace, it can be hard for a small local bakery to keep up with bigger and well established businesses. Fortunately with the help of CES, we were introduced to grant programs like Growing Foward II which has allowed us to diversify our product range by more than doubling our number of SKUs. This has helped us to offer a local option for products that were previously imported from other provinces or other countries, and is allowing us to work on more products with export potential. I am positive that we would not have been able to accomplish all of this without the help of CES and programs like Growing Forward which we otherwise would never have known about. The assistance we've received from CES has been absolutely invaluable for our company."
Dr. Karim Sharifat, President

Cinnaroll Bakeries Limited
“Over the past several years we have worked with CES Development Officers, which have always been very professional and resourceful in helping us identify grants that could be of value to our business. The grants in which we have participated in over the years have unquestionably benefited our company in many ways. The Development Officers have always been very supportive and knowledgeable in guiding us through the processes involved for administering the various grants from beginning to end. Without the CES guidance and support there is no doubt in my mind it would be very difficult if not impossible for smaller Alberta companies with limited people and financial resources to fully benefit from the grants that are available”
Craig Parsons, Chief Operating Officer

Oliver's Candies Ltd.
“As a smaller manufacturer in Alberta it is often difficult to stay abreast of all the changes and opportunities that effect our industry including grant programs such as Growing Forward II. CES have been not only a tremendous resource; they have also offered and provided invaluable guidance. I am convinced that without their assistance we would not have been successful in attaining these grants in fact we may never even know that they existed”
