A factory dedicated to manufacturing dog and cat food being built in Drummondville


Groupe Inovo, a family poultry business, and Groupe Legault, a family business that owns Mondou pet store chain, are uniting their expertise to create Jupiter, a state-of-the-art plant that will be located in Drummondville, Quebec and will manufacture dry dog and cat food.

This project worth nearly $45 million will help create some 50 new jobs over the next five years. In addition to funding from Groupe Inovo and Groupe Legault, the project is also supported financially by Canada Economic Development for Quebec Regions, Investissement Québec and Desjardins. Strategically located on Route 139 in the Drummondville Industrial Park, near highways 55 and 20 as well as the U.S. border, this location was chosen to allow the plant to be more agile in its exports to the United States.

The plant will have a surface area of 121,760 square feet on 784,465 square feet of land. The companies said in a release that they will find state-of-the-art equipment to ensure the production of dry dog and cat food, developed with the animal nutrition experts. Construction began in July and will take approximately 18 months to complete, with an expected opening in early 2021.
