Minimal processing of fish and pork in Quebec: a financial feasibility study

Authors: K. Gunjal, M. Owusu·Manu, H.S. Ramaswamy and F. Amankwah
Description: Three food processing projects, cryogenic freezing of pork loin and of fish as well as Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) of pork loin, were evaluated. By adopting a similar plant layout and production plan, it was shown that construction and operation of a processing plant in Quebec for each of the three processes was financially profitable. Further sensitivity analysis was also carried out. The calculated IRR compared favorably with the return rates on the Toronto Stock Exchange and on capital for some food and beverage industries. The results also showed that theMAPtechnology ofprocessing pork was much more profitable than the other alternatives.
