Olymel announces temporary closing of plant in Alberta


Olymel management announces the temporary closing of its hog slaughtering, cutting and deboning plant in Red Deer, Alta.

Olymel believes that the conditions are no longer safe and efficient due to a resurgence of positive cases of COVID-19 among plant employees.

The temporary closing is for an indefinite period. The union was notified and plant management will complete the facility closure as soon as possible.

Sanitary measures will still be in effect during the shutdown and Olymel management will be in contact with officials at Alberta Health Services.

Olymel has informed all hog suppliers of the Red Deer plant of the closure, and has suspended all pending deliveries.
