Bonduelle Canada expands three Ontario plants with provincial investmentOntario is partnering with Bonduelle Canada Inc. to support upgrades to three vegetable processing facilities in the southwestern part of the province. This will create 87 jobs and ensure that more than 700 positions in Tecumseh, Ingersoll and Strathroy will be retained.
Bonduelle Canada Inc. processes Ontario-grown vegetables in frozen and canned formats for Canadian and US markets at its three Ontario processing facilities. The facilities produce 250 million pounds of finished vegetable produce annually.
Ontario is investing up to $8.5 million in Bonduelle’s $79.8-million facility expansion project through the Jobs and Prosperity Fund (Food and Beverage Growth Fund).
Through the Jobs and Prosperity Fund, the province will help Bonduelle adopt new technology to put new frozen vegetable products and packaging formats on the domestic and export markets, increase productivity, enhance food safety and increase exports. It is anticipated that exports to the U.S. will increase by $34 million per year, a 55 percent increase over current levels.
Areadevelopment.com quoted Jeff Leal, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, as saying: “Our government’s investment in Bonduelle Canada Inc. will support major upgrades to the province’s vegetable processing sector. These upgrades will have a very positive impact on the supply chain and future sustainability, with increased purchases from 200 Ontario vegetable growers and a significant increase in exports of Ontario-grown and processed vegetables. This strategic investment will also create and retain jobs, boost local economies in Tecumseh, Ingersoll and Strathroy and support the competitiveness and further growth of Ontario’s agri-food sector.”
