Our story

Creating jobs in Hamilton

Hamilton is home to our state-of-the-art Heritage facility. We chose Hamilton because of its proximity to Toronto and other major cities and because it’s home to a skilled workforce. Our plant represents the largest investment ever made in food manufacturing in Canada.
We broke ground in June 2012 on 48 acres of land and the new 500,000 sq ft plant began production in 2014. Our Heritage plant is the most technologically advanced of our current operating plants. We use automation throughout food processing to reduce human contact with products, which improves food safety.
