Brome Lake Ducks to Expand
By Brome Lake DucksFeatures New Technology Production Poultry Production Production
June 29, 2016 – Brome Lake Ducks is investing $30 million into the construction of a new hatchery and livestock building in the region of Brome Lake, Quebec. The company has acquired the former Viande Laroche beef plant, located in the Eastern Township municipality of Asbestos that it plans to convert into a 51,000 square foot processing plant. The expansion project will allow the company to double its annual production of Peking ducks and will create more than 150 new jobs over the next few years.
Its output has increased eightfold, from 500,000 birds in 1990 to an yearly production that surpasses two million ducks which are shipped to customers from Quebec, Canada, Asia, South America and the United States.
This acquisition is the result of a close collaboration between Brome Lake Ducks, Fond de diversification économique de la MRC des Sources, Investissement Québec and Desjardins.
