Statement From Anita Cassidy on The Cultivated B Announcement to Open Canadian Manufacturing Facility and Innovation Hub in Burlington
October 27, 2022
Today we are thrilled to finally share the news that The Cultivated B will open its Canadian Manufacturing Facility and Innovation Hub in Burlington at 649 North Service Road.
649 North Service Road, also known as the former L3 Harris building, is the second largest industrial building in Burlington and this investment represents the largest new industrial purchase in over a decade. We are very excited that we were able to support them in finding the location, and we feel The Cultivated B is an ideal fit for the space.
The work The Cultivated B is doing in the field of Bio-Technology and cellular agriculture has the potential to be truly groundbreaking, changing the way we think about plant-based resources.
Burlington is already home to a thriving food and beverage sector, and The Cultivated B will be a welcomed addition as a true leader in innovation.
In choosing their location, The Cultivated B recognized everything Burlington has to offer. Burlington’s prime location offers easy access to southwestern Ontario and the northwestern US. 73% of our residents have a post-secondary education, and there are 20 post-secondary institutions within a 1-hour drive of Halton region. As The Cultivated B prepares to hire 200 people over the next two years, this will offer the access they need to recruit researchers, engineers, and other knowledge-based jobs.
We would like to acknowledge our partners at Toronto Global and Halton Region for the tremendous work they put in to supporting The Cultivated B on securing the location. Burlington is fortunate to have the support of partners who share our passion for supporting the economic prosperity and future direction of our city. It is companies like The Cultivated B that will drive Burlington into the future as a destination for innovation and talent.
Burlington Economic Development and the City of Burlington look forward to furthering the relationship with Hamid, Raphael and the rest of the team at The Cultivated B to ensure their move to Burlington is as smooth as possible and assist them in becoming an integrated part of our community.
