Canadian brewer, Molson, has unveiled plans for a major upgrade to its Toronto brewery. The company plans initially to invest some C$34.8m in the site, the first phase of a planned C$100m investment plan.

"This investment demonstrates Molson's commitment to delivering the best-in-class quality, in a first-class work environment," said Molson chairman and CEO, Dan O'Neill.

"This capital project will upgrade the current brewery with the most modern packaging line, enabling Molson to effectively compete against the best breweries in the world." The work is expected to be completed by autumn 2002.
