Ontario is partnering with Hain Celestial Canada to help the company establish a new manufacturing plant in Quinte West and create 26 new jobs in the region.
Hain Celestial Canada is a leading food manufacturer that produces a wide range of natural, organic food and personal care products. The company sells products for more than 25 brand names including, Celestial Seasonings Tea, Yves Veggie Cuisine, Terra Chips, Tilda rice and Live Clean personal care products. The products are sold in major grocery chains, natural food, and club stores across North America.
With support from the Eastern Ontario Development Fund, the company will establish a 35,000 square foot plant in Quinte West, its second manufacturing site in Ontario. Hain Celestial Canada will also purchase new equipment for blending, cooking and packaging. These enhancements will allow the company to meet growing demand for its products.
