Food manufacturer Dr Oetker Canada has officially opened the company’s new frozen pizza production facility in London, Ontario, designed to serve the North America markets.

The plant, which will eventually produce up to 50m pizzas a year for the Canadian and US markets, will manufacture the company’s key pizza lines including Ristorante, Casa di Mama and Panebello.

“Canada is an excellent market for Dr Oetker,” said Dr Christian von Twickel, executive vice president at Dr Oetker Canada.

“Canadians are particularly receptive to our type of innovative and high-quality products and we are excited to have opened our first North American frozen pizza plant in London, Ontario. We are confident in the local workforce, the Ontario agri-food sector and the North American market and we are honoured to be part of the London community.”
