Maple Leaf Foods Reopens Plant After $20M Fire

Maple Leaf Foods has reopened its Winnipeg facility after a fire caused $20-million in damage last week.

The August 10 fire on Lagimodiere Boulevard is believed to have started on the building’s roof, with the majority of the damage contained to the electrical system.

The fire didn’t cause damage to the bacon processing expansion currently underway at the facility.

The area that handles ham boning operations has resumed production, while other areas are undergoing temporary repairs.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
