In partnership with the Ferrero Canada Ltd., the Ontario government announced during an Oct. 11 news conference that they would be making an $11-million investment into Ferrero’s upcoming Brantford facility expansion, while adding 80 jobs.

Jeff Leal, Ontario’s minister of agriculture, food and rural affairs, made the announcement during a news conference in Brantford.

“I'm pleased to be here this afternoon to announce another strategic investment in Ontario's important agri-food sector,” Leal said. “Ferrero is a family-owned company and the third largest chocolate manufacturer in the world. They are one of Ontario's largest food processors, employing more than 1000 people."

Leal announced an $11-million investment in Ferrero Canada Ltd. to help with an expansion of the Brantford facility, which will include the addition of 80 jobs and the retention of over 1,060 current jobs.

The funding will come from Ontario’s Jobs and Prosperity Fund.

“This investment will help Ferrero with its plans to expand its processing facility here in Brantford, bringing new technologies and expanding its range of processors and products made right here in Ontario,” Leal said. “In addition to helping bring a wider range of chocolate and confectionary products to Ontario, this investment will equip Ferrero with leading edge equipment and technologies, product quality, boost local production and indeed protect the environment.”

The specific advancements expected include the building of a new cocoa bean processing plant, increased manufacturing capacity for "Nutella & Go," the implementation of new processes to manufacture new Tic Tac products and the installation of a new wastewater treatment system.

The entire project is expected to cost about $90 million.

“Today is another important milestone for our company,” said Fabrizio Secco, managing director for Ferrero Canada Ltd. “We are taking today another big step in our history. All these investments represent in an excellent way our industrial footprint based on quality, on productivity and innovation in technology.”

Since 2013, the Jobs and Prosperity Fund had invested about $630 million into 30 different projects.
