08-04-2008 | |

Exceldor, a Quebec poultry processing co-operative, has announced that on 1 August it will close its plant at Grenville.

Grain News reports that the co-op, which bought Volailles Grenville in March 2007, announced to the plant’s employees in June 2007 that it would consolidate its fresh poultry slaughter and processing operations in its other two facilities, at St-Anselme and St-Damase, and explore other avenues for their facility.
The co-op, whose total stated slaughter capacity is about 1.4 mln chickens per week, announced in October 2007 that it would spend $18 mln to modernise the St-Anselme facility.
