Frozen dessert company The Original Cakerie recently shared plans to increase capacity at its London, ON production facility, with the addition of several new production lines and a new building. Construction on the project will begin later this year, according to a press release from the company. Work on the site is expected to be completed by fall 2020.
“Over the past four years, we have experienced tremendous growth as the demand for our premium and innovative products remains strong with our existing customers and we also continue to add new customers,” said Paul Lapadat, CEO of Dessert Holdings, the parent company of The Original Cakerie, in a statement. “We have made significant investments over the past three years, which has allowed us to meet demand, and this additional capacity will allow us to continue to do so in a category that is expected to maintain strong growth. “
In business for over four decades, The Original Cakerie produces more than 350 types of frozen dessert products – from layer cakes to brownies – for restaurant and retail customers across North America. The company also operates another manufacturing facility in Delta, British Columbia.
“Grocery stores and restaurant goers are increasingly indulging in high quality and tasty treats, and we are wisely expanding our business to meet the tastes and lifestyles of our customers,” said Boris Bitz, President of retail sales at Dessert Holdings, in the Liberation.
