Production to grow under Manitoba potato-plant expansion
A major expansion project has been announced for a Manitoba potato-processing plant that's expected to create about 90 new full-time jobs.
J.R. Simplot Co. and the provincial government have outlined details of the $460-million expansion of the Portage la Prairie complex.
A joint government-company release says the plant's size will grow to nearly 43,000 square metres from about 17,000 square metres. Work is to start this spring and completion is set for the fall of 2019. For the full story, CLICK HERE.
