Farquhar's Dairy of Espanola has received the Innovation Award.

Farquhar’s Dairy has been in operation – producing butter, milk and ice cream – since 1933, but the long-time producer embraces new processes and technologies to remain efficient and relevant in today’s competitive dairy industry. Between 2018 and 2020, the company teamed up with Cambrian Innovates, the research and development (R&D) arm of Cambrian College in Sudbury, to build a new chiller system. This one-of-a-kind project, which enlisted the help of students at the college, reduces energy use, boosts efficiency, and makes the operation more environmentally friendly.
