Grasslands Taber Cooperative Premium Park will be located on 60 acres in the community’s Eureka Industrial Park along Highway 36.
Taber Mayor Andrew Prokop says “thanks to our working relationship with GLTC, we are diversifying our local economy and becoming leaders in a new market that will allow our community and businesses to succeed and reap the economic benefits in the future, continuing to ensure Taber remains a great place to grow.”
