Katan Kitchens (Quinta Quinoa) will work with Northern Ontario producers on a pilot project to develop a premium gluten-free certification program.

The company is receiving up to $17,195 from the Growing Forward 2 (GF2) program — a federal-provincial-territorial funding initiative — for the project. Grain Farmers Ontario is also providing funding.

“The goal of this project is to diversify Ontario agriculture by developing new and emerging alternative crops in line with existing food trends such as vegan protein sources, and gluten-free and allergen-free foods, in our efforts to bring higher revenues to Northern Ontario farmers,” company president-CEO Jamie Draves said in a news release.

South River brewery increasing capacity at new facility

A year after opening their expanded brewery in South River, the owners at Highlander Brew Co. are slowly gaining a greater share in the craft beer market and eagerly anticipating the launch of their new training program.

Oct. 1 will mark the one-year anniversary of the opening of the new facility, which includes a community event space, and allows Highlander to brew 10 times its previous capacity.

“We are blessed over almost anybody else in the industry inasmuch as we got to design the building from the very basics, whereas most people bought a building and then had to renovate,” said Dwayne Wanner, co-owner at Highlander Brew Co.

“So, it works out for us. We’re quite happy with it.”

The initiative is a unique association between Highlander and the Village of South River.

The community provided the site, and $2 million from the Northern Ontario Heritage Fund Corp. and FedNor helped pay for the construction of the building.
