TORONTO, May 25, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Redpath Sugar Ltd. (“Redpath”) is celebrating 60 years of operating on Toronto’s Waterfront during the City’s Doors Open event, a community initiative it has been a participant of since it first began 20 years ago. The local plant was recognized this morning by the City of Toronto for its contributions to the community and the value it continues to add economically.

Redpath’s waterfront plant supplies various sugar products to the Canadian market, ranging from grocery stores to food manufacturers. As such, Deputy Mayer and City Councillor Michael Thompson presented representatives from Redpath with a scroll acknowledging the significance of the plant’s impact on both the local community and economy. Among remarks was mention of Redpath’s consistent stance as a partner and willing participant in the City’s initiatives – even when that has meant change and adjustments for the plant.

“It has been a unique and rewarding experience operating on the waterfront,” said Phil Guglielmi, General Manager of Redpath. “Throughout the years we have adjusted to rapid development and change, working alongside the City to ensure that we can continue operating efficiently while also positively impacting our immediate environment and the City at large.”

Being one of the last industrial establishments in the Toronto Harbour, Redpath has navigated the City’s growth by embracing various technological and environmental advancements. The plant continues to thrive in their operations while simultaneously working in line with the needs of the City and will remain a landmark on Toronto’s waterfront for many more years to come. 

Redpath invites members of the community to their on-site museum where they can learn first-hand the unique history of the Company. The museum is open on weekdays and admission is free to all visitors.
