Maple Leaf Foods to close Brantford plant, consolidate poultry production by 2025

Maple Leaf Foods has announced closing its production plant in Brantford, Ont.

The company will consolidate most of its Further Processed Poultry (FPP) production into its existing plant network by early 2025. The news comes after Maple Leaf Foods determined the 100-year-old facility would require significant upgrades to stay open.

“The decision to close any plant is one that we take very seriously,” said Curtis Frank, president and CEO at Maple Leaf Foods. “We are very proud of our team at Brantford and appreciate the great work they do each and every day.”  

Maple Leaf Foods says the plant’s closure will be phased to maintain business continuity and meet customer demand. Meanwhile, affected team members will be offered other opportunities at other Maple Leaf Foods facilities.

“Consolidating production into our current network allows us to reallocate our resources and increase our efficiencies by further optimizing the existing, more modern facilities in our network,” said Frank. “This supports our vision to be the most sustainable protein company on Earth and our commitment to produce world-class products safely and efficiently as we support the growth of our protein business.”
