JEFO, a global leader in high-performance nonmedicated nutritional solutions for animals, officially announced its plan to build a new 200,000sq ft production plant in Saint-Hyacinthe, Canada.
This new building will be located in the Théo-Phénix Industrial Park. The area, acquired in 2018, is strategic due to its proximity to other Jefo Group facilities, which include, among others, a transportation company, a trans-shipment site, research centres for poultry nutrition, warehouses, the production plant and the Jefo Campus that was inaugurated in 2017 to become Jefo’s headquarters, a centre for knowledge exchange on agribusiness and a privileged meeting venue for leaders of all industries in the region of Saint-Hyacinthe.
Jefo Group vice president Jean-François Fontaine said, “We aim to generate $1 billion in revenue by 2025, so this project is necessary to support our current growth and ambitious goal.” “In addition to increasing our production capacity, the new production plant will reduce the risk of producing in a single facility.”
The first phase of the project consists of two production lines, with potential expansion to six lines, which translates to the creation of 20 new jobs in the near future and 60 in the long run. Jefo’s current production plant features four production lines that generate more than 5000 tonnes of animal feed additives annually.
These products are marketed in more than 80 countries. Founded in 1982, the family owned company employs over 320 people globally. Jefo aims to improve animal health and increase human longevity by offering better sources of protein for the growing population.
