Erie Meat Products of Canada plans to revamp an old Campbell’s Soup facility in Listowel, Ontario, as a poultry processing plant, according to the Manitoba Cooperator. Erie Meat bought the plant from Campbell late last year for CAN$4.8M and will receive CAN$3M in provincial funds to use toward refrigeration equipment and production lines.


The plant is expected to hire 500 workers within three years, according to an Ontario government press release. That’s the same number of workers that the factory employed under Campbell, the Manitoba Cooperator reported.
