ST-AUGUSTIN-DE-DESMAURES — Leclerc Foods has announced the acquisition of a 790,197 square-foot production plant in Brockville, Ont.

The company plans to initiate production gradually from July 2022, achieving full capacity in January 2023. The plant will be in the Brockville Industrial Park at California Avenue.

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 in a statement.

“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.”

According to the company, this latest addition in Ontario will generate over one hundred new jobs over a five-year period following an investment of more than $100 million over five years. In terms of production volume, this plant will be Leclerc’s largest facility, which will promote the development of new markets and new product and category development.

Leclerc Foods stated that it has continually invested in its Canadian facilities — two in Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures, one in Hawkesbury and one in Cornwall — through equipment upgrades. 

This future production site will be high-tech, peanut-free certified, and devoted to cookies and bars production.
