Canadian Nectar buys 150 acres to plant apples on P.E.I.
Industry welcomes big buy from international exporter
Canadian Nectar Product's acquisition positions it to be the biggest grower in the province.
"We see there's tremendous potential exporting from P.E.I. to the rest of the world," he said.
Mike Beamish, president of the P.E.I. Apple Growers Association, said hearing about the big scale grower is welcome news.
Beamish, who runs Beamish Orchard in Warren Grove, said other island growers feel the same. None objected when the issue was discussed at the last association meeting.
