The Pacorini Group has selected Brantford for their new cocoa bulk storage and cleaning facility, leasing 230,153 sq.ft. of vacant industrial space at 46 Bosworth Court. The Brantford location will operate under Pacorini Canada Ltd., solely purposed for the bulk storage and cleaning of raw cocoa for Ferrero Canada Ltd. The raw cocoa will in turn be processed at Ferrero’s new cocoa plant that is currently under construction and slated to be operational by January 2018.
As outlined in the City of Brantford’s October 2017 building permit report, improvements and renovations to the existing facility have amounted to $184,000 in construction value overall. It is anticipated that 20-40 new jobs will be created at the Brantford facility.
