LONDON — Odd Burger Corporation, a vegan fast-food chain, announced it has secured land in London, ON for the development of a new 50,000 sq. ft. food manufacturing facility.
The 5.5 acre parcel of land was purchased from the City of London and approved by City Council on July 5, 2022. The site is located on Innovation Drive, an Industrial Park created by the City of London in order to attract sustainable manufacturing businesses to the region. The site is fully serviced by municipal services including water, sewage, storm drainage and has access to sufficient electricity and natural gas utilities. The land will initially house a 50,000 sq. ft. new building, and can be expanded to nearly 150,000 sq. ft. of building space as the need arises to increase manufacturing capacity in the future.
The new facility, when completed, is expected to be operated by Odd Burger’s food technology and manufacturing subsidiary, Preposterous Foods Inc., and is anticipated to produce the Company’s line of plant-based proteins and dairy-free sauces. The increased capacity, when completed, at the new facility will allow Preposterous Foods to reportedly support hundreds of Odd Burger franchised restaurant locations across North America, as well as supply select products to external food service customers.
“We are thrilled to commence this next chapter of growth for our company and we believe that London is the best place in the world to execute our vision for a more sustainable future,” said James McInnes, Co-Founder and CEO of Odd Burger. “We will be creating one of Canada’s most advanced plant-based food manufacturing facilities and we believe that through this investment we will be able to make a tremendous change in the industry by creating more affordable, healthy and sustainable food.”
“Odd Burger is an innovative addition to our thriving proteins cluster in London,” said Kapil Lakhotia, President & CEO of LEDC. “Our industrial lands, infrastructure, talent and supply chains continue to put London on the radar for sustainable food production and plant-based proteins development.”
