Bartek Ingredients breaks ground on a $175 million malic and fumaric acid production facility in Stoney Creek, Ont. The new plant will be one of the world’s largest malic and fumaric acid production facilities.

“We are thrilled to be breaking ground on our new facility which will set a new global benchmark for safety, efficiency, and environmental performance,” said John Burrows, CEO and president, Bartek. “We are pleased to be investing in the community of Stoney Creek and proud to play an integral part in supporting local industries and the local economy. We are thankful for our partnerships with the provincial and federal government and Environment Hamilton and their support and guidance throughout the process.”

The facility will double Bartek’s production capacity. It is expected to be fully operational at the beginning of 2024.
