Developer, builder, and property manager Broccolini together with Canadian dairy company Lactalis Canada held a groundbreaking ceremony to mark the start of construction for Lactalis Canada’s new distribution centre in Oshawa, Ont.

The 379,000-sf centre is scheduled to open in Q4 2024 and will create approximately 80 jobs in Oshawa and the surrounding region. The zero-carbon ready building will become the largest distribution centre, from a capacity standpoint, for Lactalis Group globally and will be principally used for Lactalis Canada’s cheese and tablespreads category.

“Our decision to invest in this distribution centre in Oshawa underscores our commitment to this country and its people, the food industry and Canadian economy at large and most importantly, our contribution to the prosperity and vitality of the communities in which we operate,” said Mark Taylor, CEO, Lactalis Canada.
