Toppits Foods is getting an investment from the Government of Canada of $6 million through FedDev Ontario, to help expand food processing capabilities and create 60 jobs in Brampton.
“The Government of Canada’s investment, through FedDev Ontario, will help one of Canada’s largest top frozen and fresh food processors futureproof through the adoption of automated processes,” said Francesco Sorbara, member of parliament for Vaughan–Woodbridge. “We are proud to see Toppits Foods expand from its Vaughan facility to an additional location in Brampton where it will continue to strengthen our food supply chain and food processing sector.”
With this investment, the company will expand production through the purchase and installation of new, automated, seafood processing and freezing equipment at its newly acquired facility in Brampton. This support will enable Toppits Foods to integrate the manufacturing process of its seafood products, double domestic production capacity, grow revenues and expand its customer base in both Canadian and U.S. markets.
