MONTREAL, May 7, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - Old Dutch Foods Ltd. announced
today that it will be closing its plant and warehouse operations in
Lachine, Quebec effective September 27th, 2013.
The plant was built in 1964 by Humpty Dumpty Inc. and has been in
continuous operation as a snack food plant since then. Humpty Dumpty
was acquired by Old Dutch Foods Ltd. in 2006.
The plant has reached the end of its economic life and Old Dutch Foods
has determined that it is not feasible to renovate the plant or open a
new generation snack facility in the area. There are currently 216
people listed as actively employed or on temporary layoff at the
Lachine plant that will be affected by the closing.
Going forward, the Quebec market will be supplied by other Old Dutch
Foods plants in Canada. Sales operations will continue normally and it
is anticipated that customers will not experience any supply disruption
while this transition takes place.
