Tillsonburg Custom Foods Expands Trenton-St. Marys, Ontario, Operations

Food processing company Tillsonburg Custom Foods plans to upgrade production operations in Trenton and St. Marys, Ontario, Canada. The $35 million project is expected to create 78 jobs.

“Tillsonburg Custom Foods is proud to continue to invest locally and expand our operations to provide jobs to the local community,” said Ed Lamers, President at Tillsonburg Custom Foods. “With the support from the province of Ontario through the Regional Development Program, Tillsonburg Custom Foods will remain a leader in the nation’s food processing sector and add to our capabilities to make butter tarts, meat pies, appetizers and fully cooked products for both domestic customers and the export market.”

“Since 2018, we have seen more than 700,000 jobs added to Ontario thanks to companies like Tillsonburg Custom Foods,” said Vic Fedeli, Minister of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade. “Our government is proud to support local manufacturers as they expand and create more good-paying jobs. Thank you, Tillsonburg Custom Foods, for choosing Ontario.”

Tillsonburg Custom Foods specializes in poultry products. The company is also licensed to formulate, blend and process beef and pork for specific customer projects.

“This significant investment from Tillsonburg Custom Foods is further proof that Ontario is being recognized as the food processing hub of Canada. Given the increased yields Ontario farmers are achieving as well as the tremendous value our government places on our overall food and beverage manufacturing sector, we offer a compelling value proposition that is attracting investment. Our provincial Grow Ontario Strategy’s actions are making a difference, increasing demand for the good things that grow in Ontario,” said Lisa Thompson, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs.
