CANADA - In a project estimated to cost C$40 million, Eden Valley has retrofitted the former Larsen’s pork processing plant property.
The Eden Valley poultry plant in Berwick has officially begun processing chicken from Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island, reports Daily Business Buzz.
The project, estimated to cost C$40 million, was announced in April 2011. Eden Valley has retrofitted the former Larsen’s pork processing plant property and will employ 180 staff.
Eden Valley is a joint venture between Ontario’s Maple Lodge Farm and United Poultry Producers Incorporated.
