Scarborough, Ont. – Breadsource Corporation, a family-owned company that produces baked goods, will build an $18.4-million manufacturing facility in Scarborough, Ont., creating 13 new jobs and training 40 current workers on new technology at the plant.
The company will build a new 105,000-square-foot, fully automated processing facility that it expects will triple production.
As part of this investment, the Ontario government is providing Breadsource Corporation with $2.75 million in funding through the Advanced Manufacturing Innovation and Competitiveness stream of its Regional Development Program.
“Our government is proud to support local manufacturers as they expand and create more good-paying jobs in communities across the province,” said Vic Fedeli, minister of economic development, job creation and trade in a news release.
“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 Corp. “We have called Scarborough our home for over 35 years, and look forward to furthering our connection with the community for years to come.”
Ontario is investing $140 million through its Regional Development Program to help companies across the province grow. Applications for the latest round of the Advanced Manufacturing and Innovation Competitiveness stream of the Regional Development Program are open until Aug. 31, 2023.
