Goodfood announces second fulfilment centre in GTA
June 19, 2020, Montreal, Que. – Goodfood Market Corp., a leading online grocery company in Canada, has signed a lease for its second fulfilment centre in the Greater Toronto Area.
The new 200,000-square-foot facility will be a state-of-the-art online grocery delivery centre and expand Goodfood’s operating footprint to six sites from coast to coast.
The company’s 550,000 square feet of fulfilment centres extend its position as the leading, national, purpose-built grocery delivery infrastructure in terms of square footage. The fulfilment centre is currently under construction and should be operational by the end of summer 2021 and create over 2,000 jobs at full capacity.
“We are pleased to have found a facility of this size in a great location in Mississauga,” said Neil Cuggy, president and chief operating officer of Goodfood. “Our largest facility to date will be highly automated to fulfil online grocery products more efficiently and have multiple temperature zones providing us with the ability to deliver seamlessly all of Goodfood’s delicious products to our loyal members.
“We will be investing in our team’s know-how and experience and our goal is to make this the most profitable online grocery fulfilment centre in the country. We are very excited to begin the buildout of this flagship facility and provide employment opportunities across all levels.”
Jonathan Ferrari, CEO of Goodfood, said the company found an ideal location to begin the buildout of the centre in its biggest market and continue to be a leader in the rapidly accelerating online grocery market.
“We are changing how Canadians shop for groceries and hence we want to be closer to our members and offer our products with more flexibility to a larger number of Canadians.”
Goodfood presently has a production facility and administrative offices in Montreal, two production facilities in the GTA, production facilities in Calgary and Vancouver, and a breakfast facility in Montreal.
