French’s adds another product line to the mix at Ontario factory
From: Canadian Manufacturing
The French’s Food Co. has added another product category to its Canadian-made product line, Not Your Ordinary Caesar Cocktail Mix, which will be produced at Highbury Canco in Leamington ON, with locally-sourced tomatoes.
The 1.8 million square-foot Leamington factory, just east of Windsor, specializes in packaging and logistics and employs over 500 people full-time.
Highbury Canco Corp. took over the Leamington plant, following ketchup giant Heinz’s decision to close the facility in November 2013.
French’s move to use Leamington tomatoes in its ketchup has been a significant boost to the local economy, and its new Caesar mix being produced in the town signals future growth and job security for hundreds of workers.
“We are delighted to continue our implementation of The French’s Promise in Canada,” said Elliot Penner, president of French’s Food Division. “Introducing new products that have great flavour and are made with quality ingredients sourced locally is an important part of our strategic vision.”
French’s Mustard is also made with 100 per cent Canadian mustard seed grown in Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Alberta.
