Last year, Canadian meat company Maple Leaf Foods created Greenleaf as an independently operating subsidiary responsible for managing its plant-based brands, which include Lightlife Foods and Field Roast Grain Meat Co.—companies that Maple Leaf acquired for $140 million and $120 million, respectively. “Our new facility will be a center of plant-based protein excellence that helps accelerate our company’s growth. This will support our rich pipeline of innovative products that both satisfy increasing consumer demand and drive our continued leadership of this dynamic category in the United States and Canada into the future,” Greenleaf President Dan Curtin said. “Our world-class research and development teams are shattering what were once thought to be the culinary boundaries of plant-based protein products, and our new facility will take those ideas from development to commercialization. We are grateful for the incredible support from the State of Indiana, as well as Shelby County and the City of Shelbyville, who have helped make this a reality.” Indiana Governor Eric J. Holcomb and Shelbyville Mayor Tom DeBaun, along with other officials, were present at Greenleaf’s groundbreaking event to welcome the construction of the factory. “This project diversifies our employment options locally and regionally as well as bringing tremendous opportunities to our community,” DeBaun said. The new 57-acre facility—the largest of plant-based production factory in North America—will double Greenleaf’s capacity to produce vegan food and create 460 jobs when it begins production in 2020.
