Vegan fast-food brand Odd Burger has secured land in London, Ontario, Canada for the development of a new 50,000 square feet food manufacturing facility. The new building can be expanded to nearly 150,000 square feet of building space as the need arises to increase manufacturing capacity in the future.
The new facility, when completed, is expected to be operated by Odd Burger’s food technology and manufacturing subsidiary, Preposterous Foods Inc., and is anticipated to produce the brand’s line of plant-based proteins and dairy-free sauces. The increased capacity, when completed, at the new facility will allow Preposterous Foods to support hundreds of Odd Burger franchised restaurant locations across North America, as well as supply select products to external food service customers. With the new expansion, Preposterous Foods also plans to launch a retail product line, which will be targeted for sale in grocery stores and direct-to-consumer sales channels.
“We are thrilled to commence this next chapter of growth for our company and we believe that London is the best place in the world to execute our vision for a more sustainable future,” James McInnes, co-founder and CEO of Odd Burger, said in the release. “We will be creating one of Canada’s most advanced plant-based food manufacturing facilities and we believe that through this investment we will be able to make a tremendous change in the industry by creating more affordable, healthy and sustainable food.”
