Do you have a background in farming and agriculture? Are you looking for a company that cares for its employees as much is its customers?

If so, this is the place for you.

Founded in 1960, Grand Valley Fortifiers specializes in the formulation, manufacture and sale of high quality, leading-edge mineral premixes for swine, dairy, beef and poultry producers. With markets including both Canadian livestock and international farmers, we work to improve our customers’ products, their profitability, and human health.

Our corporate values include care for our employees and community, as well as professionalism and innovation for our clients. We strongly believe that success is only possible through principled business practices that embody passion and integrity at all times.

Production Assistant

Working within a team, your work will ensure that feed supplement production goes smoothly. Starting with measuring and pouring ingredients, all the way through manufacture and shipping, you’ll follow standard procedures that result in a consistent, high-quality product.

Succeeding here will require more than a strong individual effort. As a member of a small team, you’ll maintain open communication and share ideas to improve both processes and teamwork.

Practically speaking, you will:

Ensure all incoming ingredients are set up, weighed, sampled and entered into inventory
Ensure stock is inventoried to proper levels
Rotate stock properly (FIFO)
Ensure orders are manufactured on time and shipped on schedule
Ensure all manufactured products are labelled correctly
Follow all procedures pertaining to HACCP, CFIA and other regulations
Maintain a safe and clean working environment, and work safely in all aspects of the job
Report accidents, safety concerns and errors to Lead Hand and/or Production Manager immediately
Attend all meetings that pertain to the manufacturing area (production, training, safety and town hall meetings)
Suggest ways to control/reduce costs or improve efficiency
Working with GVF

This is a contract, shift work position with rotating days and afternoons (7am – 4pm, 3:30pm – 12am), with each rotation including a minimum 2 hours of OT.

Here are just some of the benefits of joining our team:

$21 - $24 per hour with potential for wage increase
OT after 40 hours
Health/Dental benefits
Two weeks’ vacation
Ours is a family business that cares about its employees and its community. We make sure that all our staff get what the best workers deserve: benefits, good wages, and respect. Whether through our Christian charitable work, or our dedication to staff, GVF is committed to living out our principles.


High school diploma or equivalency
Experience/knowledge of basic farming practices and principles
Experience with standard computer applications (MS Office, inventory software, etc.)
Ability to lift/carry a maximum of 55 lbs.
Ability to perform physical work for substantial periods
And here’s what would be an asset:

Familiarity with feed types and principles of livestock nutrition (male v female, breeding v performance animals, etc.)
Forklift license
