BioLine Corporation receives provincial award

The Sarnia Observer – July 10, 2019

A Brooke-Alvinston company making fulvic acid for soil out of spent mushroom compost, instead of traditional soft coal sources, has received an Excellence in Agriculture honourable mention award from the provincial government.

Monte McNaughton, minister of labour and MPP for Lambton-Kent-Middlesex, presented the award on behalf of Agriculture Minister Ernie Hardeman recently to BioLine Corporation.

The company also uses minimal energy while avoiding harsh chemicals in its production of fulvic acid, an organic compound used to bolster soil properties, McNaughton’s office said in a press release.

“It’s important to recognize outstanding innovations like those BioLine Corporation has developed,” McNaughton said in the release. “Innovative ideas are helping to grow Ontario’s agri-food sector for today and tomorrow.”

The awards honour the contributions of hard-working and innovative people across the province creating new agri-food products, adding value to existing products, and raising the bar for excellence by demonstrating leadership in their field that will benefit the sector, or advanced technological innovation, the release says.
