Update on Westfair Centralized Meat Cutting Facility

The Centralized meat cutting facility recently announced by Westfair Foods will be supplying counter ready products to Extra Foods and Real Canadian Wholesale Clubs in B.C.. The Cargill Foods run plant will eliminate the need for meatcutters in two Extra Foods stores, Creston and Dawson Creek. The other Extra Foods and RCWC stores were not cutting meat and received product from either a Real Canadian Superstore or one of the two Extra Foods listed . The impact will be felt in Superstores who cut from a number of other locations. The Company says there is no plan to introduce counter ready product into Superstores at this time.
