The Sherbrooke facility, which has proudly been a part of the Quebec community since 1939, produces Carnation® evaporated milk and Eagle Brand® sweetened condensed milk products for Canadians.
The investment, supported in part by funding from the Federal Ministry of Agriculture and Agri-Food, will be used to upgrade equipment that will allow the facility to increase its flexibility and the variety of products produced. This improvement will also lead Smucker to broaden its sourcing of domestic milk.
"This investment will go a long way toward solidifying our long-term presence in Sherbrooke," said Aurelio Calabretta, Vice President & General Manager for Smucker Foods of Canada, in a press release. "Through this initiative, we will be able to introduce new packaging capabilities previously unavailable to us in Canada."
In addition to playing an important role in the Smucker Foods of Canada business model, the Sherbrooke facility has worked on its corporate citizen image. The facility's employees continue to support numerous local organizations and initiatives and have maintained a dedication to environmentally sustainable practices.
Smucker began offering products in Canada in 1988 and today is a proud employer with offices in Sherbrooke, Montreal, Markham, Brampton, and Calgary. Smucker Foods of Canada offers a family of trusted brands including Bick's®, Carnation®, Double Fruit®, Eagle Brand®, Five Roses®, Folgers®, Jif®, Meow Mix®, Milk-Bone®, Nature's Recipe®, Robin Hood®, and Smucker's®.
