By distributing a simple box of food, we can witness the gratitude and hope in the eyes of the people who help us. A single parent can feed his child tonight, a senior has food in the cupboard for breakfast tomorrow, teenagers living on the street have nutritious food for the stomach, and a single mother and her children have access to a healthy meal. Their generosity allows us to provide food to the 1,020 households that turn to our organization each month, as well as to other people who use other local food programs and support. We are grateful that we can offer our neighbours not only food but also hope and support in these difficult times.
Brantford Food Bank provides emergency food service in its industrial park building, which is shared with a warehouse company. The facility shares an industrial park with two other local food banks, a pantry and a warehouse.
The new plant will be able to produce most Ferrero brands, including the Tic Tac brand, as well as some of the company's other products, such as the popular chocolate and ice cream brands. Ferrero has been marketing the product in the North American market since 1969, when it launched its Tic-Tac brand.
Ferrero invested 250 million euros in the plant in 2004 and began construction in the same year. The plan was reinforced by the Canadian government's commitment to give Ferrero $5.5 million for expansion in November 2010. In addition to the investments, the Canadian government is contributing an additional 5-5 million euros to investments under the Canada-US Trade and Investment Partnership Agreement.
Ferrero has purchased the site, which will reach its full capacity of 900,000ft2 per year in two phases. The architects of the project are GPA Associates, and the structural steel is supplied by Tresman Steel and M & G Steel. The steel construction will cost $1.5 million per ton, with Ferrero costing a total of about $2.2 million. In addition to supplying the US market, the 900,000 FT2 plant will also be built in Canada and the United States.
