Breadsource Corporation, a family-owned company that produces baked goods has announced a plan to build an $18.4 million manufacturing facility in Scarborough.
“Since 2018, we have seen more than 700,000 jobs added to Ontario thanks to companies like Breadsource Corporation,” said Vic Fedeli, Ontario minister of economic development, job creation and trade. “Thank you, Breadsource Corporation, for choosing Ontario.”
The company will build a new 105,000 sq. ft., fully automated processing plant and will triple production to meet growing demand. The provincial government is providing $2.75 million in funding through the Advanced Manufacturing Innovation and Competitiveness stream of its Regional Development Program.
“We are grateful for the support and trust in our vision that the Government of Ontario has provided us,” said Arif Sunderji, vice-president of Breadsource Corporation. “We have called Scarborough our home for over 35 years and look forward to furthering our connection with the community for years to come.”
To date, Ontario has provided more than $100 million to support 90 projects through the program and applications for the latest round of the Advanced Manufacturing and Innovation Competitiveness stream of the Regional Development Program are open until August 31, 2023.
