North Bay meat packer expanding

Canada Meat Group plans to build a 50,000-square-foot halal processing plant in North Bay to add capacity to its existing plant.

The company has operated a 16,000-square-foot beef and halal beef processing plant and cold storage facility at the North Bay Airport Industrial Business Park since March 2020.

The new plant will employ 150 people and source cattle from farms in northeastern Ontario and northern Quebec. Canada Meat Group has already secured land and equipment and completed the design of the new plant.

The federally regulated facility would process 200 head per day of beef, veal and lamb, up to five days per week, and could also offer custom slaughter, reports Northern Ontario Business.
