A well-known coffee and tea manufacturer is expanding its facilities in Mississauga and creating some new jobs in the process.
Today (Feb. 3), the Province announced it’s contributing $5 million to Mother Parkers Tea and Coffee’s $33.4 million investment in its existing Mississauga campus.
The Province says Mother Parkers’ investment, which will see the construction of a new cold coffee and tea extracts manufacturing facility next to its existing facilities, will boost local manufacturing and create new jobs.
“Local manufacturers, like Mother Parkers, are at the heart of communities across the province, creating good-paying jobs for local families and attracting more investments,” said Vic Fedeli, Minister of Economic Development, Job Creation and Trade, in a statement.
“We’re proud to support this homegrown success story through our Regional Development Program as they continue to innovate and grow.”
The company’s manufacturing facility is located on Stanfield Road, not far from the Dundas St. E. and Tomken Rd. intersection.
Mother Parkers is a fourth-generation family-owned manufacturer and supplier that has grown from a small wholesale grocery distributor in Toronto into a global tea and coffee company. According to the Province, the company manufactures private-label products for retailers and restaurant chains and creates its own brands.
The Province says the facility expansion will be used to create a new product line.
“We are very pleased to have the Ontario government’s investment as Mother Parkers continues to expand our Mississauga campus and grow our contributions to the regional economy,” said Fred Schaeffer, President & CEO of Mother Parkers Tea & Coffee, in a statement.
“The support we’ve received through the Advanced Manufacturing Innovation and Competitiveness Fund is helping us to move quickly to compete in one of North America’s fastest-growing beverage categories.”insauga's Editorial Standards and Policies advertising
