Agropur injects $34 million into ice cream and frozen novelties plant in Truro, N.S.


Agropur has announced an investment of $34 million for its ice cream and frozen novelties plant in Truro, N.S. The investment will be used to redefine the space within the plant and will support the development of several business opportunities for Agropur.

The investment bolsters Agropur’s commitment to supporting the economic vitality of the Atlantic region, the province of Nova Scotia, and the town of Truro. The economic impacts are reported to be significant: the construction will employ members of the community, the creation of high-quality jobs and the spin-offs from a larger payroll will all make a difference in the region. With this investment, the Truro installation will be one of Agropur’s Centers of Excellence for extrusion-type frozen products.

In addition to better defining the space in the plant, the investment will allow the creation of a new extrusion line for value-added innovation in the premium novelties segment. Many exciting business opportunities will be developed with this addition and the expertise of the Truro plant team.

“It is with great pride and excitement that we announce a major investment in the Truro Plant, the largest plant capital investments made in Canada for the last five years. This confirms the importance of the Atlantic region for Agropur and our commitment to remain a major player in the region and to pursue the opportunities it presents,” said Jeannie van Dyk, vice-president of Agropur’s board, and director for the Atlantic region.
