US: Baker Bridor to expand US plant
French industrial baker Bridor, which supplies products to the supermarket and foodservice channels, is planning to expand its plant in the US.
The project at the site in Vineland, New Jersey, will cost US$35m. It is scheduled for completion by March and lead to the creation of almost 100 jobs, taking the size of the workforce at the plant to 150.
"We are experiencing strong growth in Canada and the US. Our production lines are fillling up and we have need of more capacity," Jean-François Duquesne, CEO of Bridor's North American arm, told just-food. "The extension of the Vineland plant focuses on the addition of production unit for viennese pastry, which we currently don't manufacture in the US."
Bridor already has three plants in and around Montreal. Part of French baker and restaurant company Groupe Le Duff, Bridor has an annual turnover of around EUR400m.
