In a $420 million, five-year project, Canadian food and drug retailer Metro Inc. plans to build an automated distribution center for fresh and frozen products and enlarge an existing produce and dairy DC.

Metro said the new fresh/frozen facility in Terrebonne, Quebec, just north of Montreal, is slated to open in 2023.

Metro noted that projected volume growth, along with the integration of volume currently distributed by third parties, will allow the company to maintain stable employment levels in Quebec.
