Canada-based cookies, crackers, and bars manufacturer Leclerc Foods has announced the acquisition of a 790,197 square-foot production facility in Brockville, Ontario.
The acquisition is part of the company’s strategy to expand the business where C$100 million will be invested over the next five years and 200 new jobs will be created within the first two years of operation. The facility will be Leclerc’s largest facility and will be used to reach new markets and enter new product categories.
“Brockville offers a strategic location within North America, near US customs and our other Leclerc plants in Canada and the USA. This new facility will allow us to continue to grow our operations in full expansion,” said Denis Leclerc, President of Leclerc Foods. “We firmly believe that our team members are what make us stand out from the big multinational food companies, and we look forward to welcoming Brockville residents into our family”.
