Dunn-Rite Food Products is installing a $4.5-million waste and water treatment system with the help of $1.5 million in assistance from the federal and provincial governments.

The new state-of-the-art technology will reduce water use in its processing operations by a minimum of 10 per cent and ensure it exceeds municipal standards for wastewater.

It’s part of an ongoing $26-million renovation and expansion project at Dunn-Rite. The company currently employs over 300 people and processes more than 300,000 birds every week from Manitoba chicken producers.

Dunn-Rite, a family business that was founded in 1940, was acquired by Surrey, B.C.-based Sunrise Farms, another family-owned business, in November 2012.
