Due to persistent labour shortage problems preventing the achievement of minimum production thresholds, Whyte’s announces the closure of its factory, located in Sainte-Rose, Laval. The closure is scheduled for next December 30.
Over the next weeks, the company will move its production and equipment to other factory in Quebec (Saint-Louis de Richelieu), and Ontario (Wallaceburg). However, the company’s headquarters will remain in Quebec, being relocated to the Sainte-Thérèse distribution centre.
As for the employees of Sainte-Rose, Whyte’s is looking to relocate as many of them to its other establishments in Quebec.
In its press release, Whyte’s specifies it will continue to serve its North American foodservice customers, as well as Canadian consumers, by producing high-quality pickled products.
