Scotsburn company pulling out of namesake community


 SCOTSBURN - The company may still be called Scotsburn, but it will no longer be based there.

Trucks sit outside Scotsburn's Sydney plant, which is set to be sold to Saputo.

Scotsburn Co-operative Limited announced today (Friday) that it is centralizing management and administration close to its largest ice cream and novelty production facility in Truro.

Earlier this year, Scotsburn decided to focus exclusively on its growing ice cream and novelty business by selling its fluid milk division to Saputo. To implement this growth strategy effectively, Scotsburn Chief Executive Officer Doug Ettinger said it makes good business sense to bring together as many employees as possible around its major ice cream production facility in Truro.

“As Scotsburn pursues new growth opportunities across Canada and the United States, focusing our administration in one location will best position our organization, as well as the local dairy farmers and our co-operative members, for continued success,” Ettinger said.

Once Scotsburn has completed centralizing its management and administration activities, approximately 230 Scotsburn employees will be working closely as an integrated team in Truro.

Eighteen positions at Scotsburn offices in Dartmouth, Scotsburn and St. John’s NL, were transferred to Truro over the past several months. The remaining 11 positions at the co-operative’s office in Scotsburn will be transferred to Truro over the next few months.
