"It was definitely a year of growth. May 25th, we saw a grand opening with several hundred people coming to see our new and renovated facility. And we were able to show the agri-food community the capacity and the capabilities that we have."

Lowry says they been able to help develop new food products, which are not only successful globally, but are also available closer to home.

"We were able to increase our production." says Lowry. "Our bottling line is busier than it has ever been."
