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.

The hatchery expansion plan includes the addition of 22,825 square feet to the existing facility, features state of the art incubation equipment, and will double its capacity to 48 million chicks annually to better serve Southern Ontario farmers and the Ontario poultry industry. The expanded operations will offer new job opportunities for the surrounding community.
