Investment will help modernize the facility allowing for increased production of local products
Smucker Foods of Canada Corp., a subsidiary of The J. M. Smucker Company, has announced a $12 million investment in its Sherbrooke manufacturing facility. The Sherbrooke facility, which has proudly been a part of the Quebec community since 1939, produces Carnation® evaporated milk and Eagle Brand® sweetened condensed milk products for Canadian consumers.
The investment, supported in part by funding from the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Agri-Food, will be used to upgrade equipment that will allow the facility to increase its flexibility and the variety of products produced. This improvement will also lead Smucker to broaden its sourcing of domestic milk.
"This investment will go a long way toward solidifying our long-term presence in Sherbrooke," said Aurelio Calabretta, Vice President & General Manager for Smucker Foods of Canada. "Through this initiative, we will be able to introduce new packaging capabilities previously unavailable to us in Canada."
