Olymel, Westco continue plans for slaughterhouse
The companies will build a slaughterhouse in New Brunswick, Canada.
After a delay, Olymel and Groupe Westco will proceed with plans for a poultry slaughtering plant in New Brunswick, Canada, according to the Canadian Press, allowing the integration of Westco’s breeding and slaughtering operations in that location.
The delay was due to negotiations with Nadeau Maple Lodge over concerns of loss of business.
A tribunal recently ruled Westco may sell its birds to whomever it chooses.
This decision, according to the New Brunswick Agriculture Minister, Ronald Ouellette, may shut down the Nadeau plant.
Construction is said to begin soon.
