Parrish and Heimbecker, a leading grain-handling giant, announced plans to expand its operations at the Hamilton-Oshawa Port Authority (HOPA) with a new flour mill and two storage silos for processing soy-meal and distillers. This initiative, set to begin construction next spring at Pier 10, underscores the company’s commitment to Canadian agriculture and the baking industry. This move follows the establishment of Ontario’s first new flour mill in over seventy years by the company in 2015, which was a significant boost to its processing capacity. The expansion cements Parrish and Heimbecker’s position as the largest user of Ontario wheat and marks another step in Hamilton’s growth as an agrifood business hub. The city, which already hosts 120 food and beverage companies, sees this development as a reinforcement of its role in the agricultural sector, further highlighted by the recent announcement of SucroCan Sourcing’s plans to build Canada’s largest sugar refinery in the area.
