Maple Leaf Foods, Canada, opened what is said to be Canada's largest commercial bakery in Hamilton, Ontario. This 385,000-sq.-ft. "Trillium" bakery is equipped with efficient design flow and best-in-class technologies.  

"As Canada's largest bakery, our new facility is among the most efficient in North America," said Michael McCain, president and CEO. "We are particularly proud of the environmental features that we engineered into the facility to meet rigorous environmental standards. The new bakery also provides us with dedicated space to support new product innovation, supported by our leadership in providing Canadians nutritious, fresh and wholesome bakery products."  

The LEED-certified bakery represents an approximate $100 million investment by Maple Leaf Foods to support the company's long-term growth as Canada's leading bakery. It will support up to 300 full-time jobs with an additional 30 seasonal hourly positions, and will produce white and whole wheat breads, buns, English muffins and tortillas using 100% Canadian wheat.
