A China-based company, Feihe International, is setting up its first subsidiary in Kingston, Ont., creating almost 300 new jobs
Kingston, Ont. – China-based Feihe International picked Ontario when it decided to establish its first subsidiary outside of China.
In a statement, the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs says Feihe International produces, packages and distributes baby formula and other related products in China.
The subsidiary, Canada Royal Milk ULC, will be located in Kingston and will create up to 277 new jobs in the community.
Ontario is investing up to $24 million in the subsidiary through the Jobs and Prosperity Fund. The statement says the funding will help Canada Royal Milk “purchase and install innovative, intelligent processing and packaging equipment for the new facility.”
The new plant is expected to be up and running by 2020 and will require “significant volumes of milk, which will support the growth of Ontario’s dairy cow and goat sectors.”
