The Barry Callebaut Group plans to build a new specialty chocolate factory in Ontario that will focus on manufacturing sugar-free chocolate, high-protein and other specialty products.

The factory is expected to produce more than 50,000 metric tonnes of liquid and moulded chocolate production. Investment over 10 years is projected to amount to more than $133 million Cdn.

More than 200 new jobs will staff its new facility, which is expected to be operational by 2024.

Currently two of Barry Callebaut’s 15 factories in North America are located in Canada: one in Chatham, Ont., and one in St. Hyacinthe, Que.
