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.

“This is something everybody has been anxiously waiting for," said Alexis Grant, economic development co-ordinator for Berwick and area.

“It’s great news to us as far as our tax base for the town, to have a new processing facility running.”
