In just a few days a delegation of Kingston and Frontenac county representatives will embark on a trade mission to China.
The group will be touring one of the plants owned by Feihe international.
Feihe recently announced a 225 million dollar investment in Kingston — opening an infant formula processing, research and development plant.
Former city councillor Richard Allen will be making the trip.
as Frontenac county’s new manager of economic development, Allen says they hope to get economic spin-off jobs by supplying cow and goat milk for Feihe’s products.
“There’s a lot of opportunity for new farmers and existing farmers to set up shop for this new supply chain.
The goat portion of the factory doesn’t start for a few years so we have a bit of time to build out that supply chain and get our local farms ready to participate if they’re interested.”
