Dare to Close Quebec Cookie Plant Next Year, Affecting About 275 Employees

MONTREAL — Dare Foods says it will close a cookie-making plant on the south shore of Montreal by mid-2020 in a move that will affect about 275 employees.

The Ontario-based company said Thursday that it told employees the production of soft cookies would be moved to other facilities across the country.

Spokesman Marc Duchesne says the plant in St-Lambert, Que., can’t be expanded or modernized because it is “landlocked” near residential and commercial areas.
