North American dairy giant Agropur is significantly funding its ice cream and frozen novelties factory in Truro, N.S.

Baker says the firm will be engaging new employees, and the commitment shows Agropur’s aim to harden its presence and pursue other business development in the Atlantic province.

“I think this lets us expand what we presently make here,” stated Robert Bowman, the manager of the Truro Agropur plant.  “There will be some innovations. Our Agropur squad is working with our key buyers to see what those innovations look like so we can provide some new business possibilities in the novelty sector.”

Bowman says the growth at the plant located in the Truro Business Park should be finished sometime in 2023.
