July 12, 2018 - Ottawa

Today, following the announcement regarding Bel’s project to produce Babybel cheese in Canada, DFC President Pierre Lampron gave the following statement:

The building of a new processing plant in Sorel-Tracy will create jobs for Canadians, adding to the 221,000 jobs supported by the dairy sector. Dairy farmers in Canada will also benefit from this announcement, as more Canadian milk will be used to make this cheese in the future.

Our Canadian dairy sector continues to contribute to the Canadian economy and to attract investments, which continues to build on stable growth in our marketplace, for the benefit of Canadians.
