PORT HOPE, June 12, 2018 – Along with Maple Lodge Farms’ (MLF) senior management, the Mayor of Port Hope, Bob Sanderson, will be in attendance at the MLF Curtis Chicks Hatchery this coming Friday as the Company announces an $8 million expansion to its Port Hope facility. This investment is further testament to MLF’s long-term commitment to the Ontario hatching egg and poultry industry, and the Port Hope community.
