Our Purpose

We believe in a strong, healthy Canadian Food Industry. Our industry is already a powerhouse in many areas but sometimes, life happens and there are problems – higher costs, lower yields, poor quality. Other times, good things happen and there are opportunities to excel and expand. As technical experts, Edge of Control excels in problem solving, project management, operations optimization and process design. We help companies meet both the good times and the bad times head on. Yes, we are geeks! But everyone loves a geek, and we love working with people. We love sharing our knowledge and believe everyone can be fantastic problem solvers. That’s why we want to work WITH you and not just FOR you!

A strong future is built on collaboration, knowledge sharing, and mutual trust. Let’s build that future together!
