Canadian-based protein processor Maple Leaf Foods announced this week it had completed construction on its 660,000 square feet state-of-the art poultry plant in London, ON ahead of schedule. According to the company, production in the new facility is expected to start in Q4 2022.

The company plans intends to hire 600 people by the end of 2022, with a total of 1,600 to be brought on board once the company is running at full capacity.
