Oshawa, Ont. – Lactalis Canada is entering into a long-term lease for a new distribution centre located in Oshawa, Ont., principally for its cheese and tablespreads supply chain network.

Set to open in the fourth quarter of 2024, the agreement was facilitated by CBRE Limited and the distribution centre will be developed, built, and leased by Broccolini with construction beginning immediately. The design of the facility was supported by GKC Architecture and Design.

The 379,000-square-foot centre will consolidate multiple shipping locations used to service the cheese and tablespreads category – including the internally operated Belleville, Ont., distribution centre – into a central, modern facility to enable the company’s long-term growth, increase capacity and efficiency while enhancing service to the company’s customers.

“Lactalis Canada’s new facility in Oshawa will become the largest distribution centre, from a capacity standpoint, for Lactalis Group globally,” said Mark Taylor, president and CEO, Lactalis Canada.
