Saint-Hyacinthe Technopole is thrilled to announce that a new agri-food processing company has set up shop in Saint-Hyacinthe. DOSE Juice Inc. chose to pursue its activities in the City of Agri-Food Biotechnology, in a new plant that meets its growth needs.
Founded in 2013, DOSE makes and sells 100% cold-pressed juices, certified organic by Ecocert. They come in 300 ml and 500 ml sizes and 14 different flavours. DOSE juices are currently sold in some 50 points of sale throughout Quebec, as well as at the company store in the Place Ville-Marie shopping mall in Montréal and online.
The new production unit, located in the Edouard-Brochu Complex, in the heart of Saint-Hyacinthe’s technological park, is already in operation. It will help DOSE meet the growing demand for its products and enable it to expand its presence in Quebec and Ontario.
“We are pleased to see this major project realized and to base our activities in the agri-food technopole. We chose Saint-Hyacinthe for its many assets, including the quality of its labour, its services and industrial infrastructures. Given the opportunities our new facilities provide, we will be able to strengthen our position as a leader in the cold-pressed juice industry,” said DOSE’s co-founder, Raphael Hubert, who was accompanied by business partner Geneviève Brousseau-Provencher.
Installation work was recently completed on the 4,000-square foot production unit. The new plant will create a dozen jobs in Saint-Hyacinthe, with more to follow over the medium term.
Bernard Forget, Saint-Hyacinthe Technopole’s Chairperson, is very happy to see DOSE Juice set down roots in the region. “For several years now, Saint-Hyacinthe has been recognized as a major centre for the development of agri-food businesses and innovative industries. The arrival of this young and dynamic business is further proof of our success in this area. DOSE is joining a long line of businesses that have made Saint-Hyacinthe the springboard for their growth.”
“We thank DOSE Juice’s owners for selecting our region in which to grow their business. Its presence demonstrates that the municipal council and Saint-Hyacinthe Technopole have succeeded in making Saint-Hyacinthe one of Quebec’s top destinations for investing and building a business,” added the mayor of Saint-Hyacinthe, Claude Corbeil.
