Good news for Local 175 and Peterborough!

June 7, 2018 at 2:32pm

Fairlife Ultrafiltered Milk is coming to Canada and it will be produced in Peterborough by Local 175 members.

Fairlife is an ultra filtered milk that contains 50% more protein and 50% less sugar than traditional milk, is lactose free, and contains nine essential nutrients.

Coca-Cola Canada will build an $85-million production facility and extend the existing Minute Maid plant. The new facility will create 40-60 jobs at the outset plus the economic offshoot with the construction of the new facility. The product will be introduced to the Canadian market this summer.

This is a wonderful opportunity for the town, the Local, and our members.
