The AgriProcessing Initiative (API) is part of the Agricultural Flexibility Fund announced in Budget 2009. The initiative is designed to enhance the competitiveness of the agri-processing sector in Canada. It provides support to existing processing companies for agri-processing projects that involve the adoption of innovative and new-to-company manufacturing technologies and processes that are essential to sustaining and improving the sector's position in today's global marketplace.
API is a five year, $50 million initiative ending on March 31, 2014. It is a discretionary program delivered nationally by Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada.
