Oct. 17, 2012, Berwick, NS - Eden Valley has completed the retrofit of the former Larsen's pork processing plant at a cost of approximately $40 million into a poultry processing plant for Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.
According to the Daily Business Buzz, the project was announced in April 2011 and will employ 180 staff.
“This is something everybody has been anxiously waiting for," said Alexis Grant, economic development co-ordinator for Berwick and area. “It’s great news to us as far as our tax base for the town… to have a new processing facility running.”
