Kellogg Canada is investing $43 million in its manufacturing plant in Belleville, Ontario, Canada. The company will add a cereal production line that will create 40 jobs. The new line will make use of advanced food manufacturing technologies.
"We're pleased to have the opportunity to grow our investment, our business, and our commitment to Ontario. We hope to be able to move quickly to create the proposed manufacturing and distribution jobs in Belleville, which would be great news for our company, as well as the community," said Carol Stewart, president of Kellogg Canada.
Kellogg will receive $4.5 million from the provincial government to support the expansion. Food processing is the second-largest manufacturing industry in Ontario, following automotive production.
The Belleville facility produces Kellogg's Mini-Wheats cereal.
