Siwin Foods Expands Edmonton, Alberta, Production Plant

Siwin Foods, a Canada-based company that makes ready-to-eat meals, will expand its production plant in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. The $54 million project is expected to create 50 jobs.

Construction of the 30,000-square-foot expansion is scheduled for 2023. The company plans to triple its output by 2024.

“There is no better place in the world than Alberta for entrepreneurs like Siwin Foods to thrive. The make-it-happen attitude combined with the support we have received from the Government of Alberta and Invest Alberta cannot be found anywhere else in the world. The abundance of high-quality foods grown, raised and produced right here in Alberta allows us to offer local food coast-to-coast across Canada and export to new markets across the globe,” Gord DeJong, Siwin Foods Vice President said.

The project is being supported by a $2.8 million Alberta Investment and Growth Fund grant from the Government of Alberta. Invest Alberta worked alongside the company and the province to support Siwin’s scale-up efforts.

“Siwin Foods’ nearly 20-year history in Alberta is a testament to the local investment ecosystem that has supported the company to expand both locally and into new markets around the world. Siwin Foods’ latest success showcases the strength of the research and development opportunities in Alberta, the high-quality raw ingredients available locally, the skilled workforce, and the network of support that ensures businesses in our province thrive,” Rick Christiaanse, Invest Alberta CEO noted.

Siwin Foods provides the highest quality in ready-to-eat and quick-cooking meal solutions. The company ships products coast to coast in Canada, exporting to the U.S. and Japan as well as working on several new markets.

“There is tremendous opportunity to invest in value-added agriculture in the Edmonton region. Access to high quality inputs, strong connections to global markets, and supportive infrastructure which includes the Leduc Food Development Processing Centre are all key to the success of companies like Siwin. Siwin is capitalizing on these opportunities by expanding here and we couldn’t be more excited to see what comes next for this regional success story,” Malcolm Bruce, Edmonton Global CEO added
