Sale Maple Leaf Foods sells poultry plant
Maple Leaf Foods acquired the plant and supply in 2018 with the purchase of select Cericola Farms assets. The company will continue to own and operate the Bradford, Ontario poultry plant that was also acquired in connection with the 2018 Cericola purchase. The sale of the Drummondville plant is expected to close this summer subject to normal closing conditions and usual regulatory processes.
"Core to Maple Leaf's strategy is sustainable and value-added meat protein products," said Michael McCain, President and CEO. "Over the past few years, our leadership position in this category has grown; however, we are focused on prioritizing capital and optimizing our processing network. The sale of the Drummondville facility is an outcome of our continued network optimization."
