Pork processor Olymel will pump millions of dollars into its Quebec factory to improve production and efficiency, leading to the creation of more than 30 jobs.

Canada’s Olymel will invest CAD$11m ($8.3m) at its meat factory in St-Henri-de-Lévis, Quebec. The move will see volume output rise significantly with the company investing in new smokers and chillers to boost its production of smoked meat products such as ham.

Olymel continues to invest in modernising and developing operations at its processing facilities in order to better meet the needs of customers and markets,​” said Olymel president and CEO Réjean Nadeau.

This $11m investment in St-Henri-de-Lévis is part of our commitment to remain a leader in our industry in Quebec and Canada, and to improve our competitive edge. To achieve its growth goals, Olymel has invested more than $250 million since 2015 in both its pork and poultry sectors.”

The meat factory currently produces smoked sausages, mock chicken and ham. Once construction has finished, over 3,000sq ft will have been added to the building. The new plant area will be 170,000sq ft, according to the company.

Separately, Olymel is in the process of cutting 340 jobs​ from its deboning plant in Saint Hyacinthe, which will see this line of work grind to halt by the end of September.
