LONDON, Ont. — McCormick Canada has announced a new multi-million-dollar expansion to its manufacturing facility in London, Ont.
As part of this expansion, the company plans to transition the blending, bottling and packaging of French’s Ketchup from a third-party Canadian supplier to in-house production in London.
“We are proud to further our investment in the London area by expanding our bottling capabilities as we continue to deliver our delicious Canadian ketchup to families across the country,” says Trevor Squires, general manager, McCormick Canada.
Bottling had begun at the facility in February and is expected to be up to full production this week.
To celebrate this expansion, last week, residents of London who live along a designated Maple-leaf-shaped map were surprised with a gift of local favourites on their doorstep from Club House and French’s. The company also made $5,000 donation to the London Food Bank.
“This London-based maple-leaf map represents national and local pride,” adds Squires. “It’s a 27-kilometer route that encompasses the heart of London and our McCormick facilities — where we produce a range of beloved cooking and baking flavours relied on by Canadians every day.”
