Olymel investing in Alberta

Olymel plans to invest $2 million to renovate and equip its plant at Red Deer, Alta., to produce fresh sausages.

Work on the renovations and installation of refrigeration and other equipment will begin at the middle of the month.

About 20 jobs will be added to the workforce of more than 1,400.

"The new section for fresh sausage production at the Red Deer plant is an integral part of an investment plan directed at greater penetration in the Western Canadian market to meet growing demand for sausage products manufactured in Canada," said Olymel president and chief executive officer Réjean Nadeau.
