Olymel announces closure of pork and poultry processing plants

Sep 18, 2023

Olymel management made a series of announcements this week as part of measures to reorganise its business lines and optimise operations at its facilities, according to a company-issued press release.

In Quebec’s fresh pork sector, Olymel management announced the closure of its boning and packaging plant in Princeville, Centre-du-Québec. 

The closure impacts 301 employees. They have been given 16 weeks’ notice of termination. The company is rolling out a plan for those who wish to be relocated within the company.

The plant will cease operations on November 10. 

“Today more than ever, it is necessary to continue to rethink our organisation in order to optimise all of our activities," said Yanick Gervais, president and CEO of Olymel. "The fresh pork industry is slowly getting back on track after two years of tumult that forced us to reorganise our operations."
