Leclerc Foods to establish production facility in Brockville, Ontario (CNW Group/Groupe Biscuits Leclerc).

Leclerc Foods, a North American snack food manufacturer, acquires a 790,197-sf production plant in Brockville, Ont. Production is planned to start gradually from July 2022, achieving full capacity in January 2023. The plant will be in the Brockville Industrial Park at California Avenue.

Brockville offers a strategic location within North America, near US customs and our other Leclerc plants in Canada and the USA. This new facility will allow us to continue to grow our operations in full expansion,” said Denis Leclerc, president of Leclerc Foods. “We firmly believe that our team members are what make us stand out from the big multinational food companies, and we look forward to welcoming Brockville residents into our family.”

Resulting from an investment of more than $100 million over five years (including production equipment), this latest addition in Ontario will generate over 100 new jobs over a five-year period. In terms of production volume, this plant will be Leclerc’s largest facility, which will promote the development of new markets and new product and category development.

This future production site will be high-tech, peanut-free certified, and devoted to cookies and bars production.
