The leading European style bakery in North America will invest $40 million to double the size of its Boucherville baking facility and increase its production capacity by 80%. This expansion is expected to create some 60 news jobs by the end of the project.
"The company has witnessed exponential growth in recent years and this investment shows just how committed we are to continuously improving our offering," said Jean François Duquesne, CEO of Bridor. "We are proud to combine our traditional European baking know-how with cutting-edge industrial technology. It's our special edge that allows us to produce quality breads and Viennese pastries at a wide scale."
Operating in Québec for over 30 years, Bridor focuses on innovation but stays true to tradition, using recipes that feature quality local ingredients with no preservatives, no artificial colouring and no artificial flavours. Expanding the Boucherville plant will allow Bridor to broaden its range of products and continue offering customers the best the bakery has to offer in North America.
The $40 million dedicated to the Boucherville project is part of a global five-year investment of €400 million initiated by Louis Le Duff, CEO and founder of Le Duff Group and owner of Bridor, in order to expand industrial operations in France and North America.
Bridor operates industrial bakeries in Canada and the United States and markets the Bridor and Au Pain Doré brands. The company employs more than 700 people at its four plants in North America, 500 of whom work in Canada.
