Quebec Slaughterhouse to Close

Olymel has announced plans to permanently close its Vallée-Jonction slaughterhouse in December 2023. Olymel president and CEO Yanick Gervais told the media that the closure is due to a variety of factors, including inflation, the poor state of the facility, the pandemic, the closure of the Chinese market, and a labour shortage. The closure will impact approximately 1,000 workers.
