Canadian firm plans hiring on Eastern Shore

A Canadian natural foods company plans to hire up to 100 workers for its new manufacturing facility in Cambridge, the state Department of Business and Economic Development announced Monday.

Protenergy Natural Foods Inc. bought the manufacturing assets of Foodswing Inc. to establish its first U.S. facility.

According to Protenergy, the company made the acquisition to expand its production capacity to meet the growing demand for its soups, broths, sauces and gravies.

“We have already hired several employees and expect to hire several more in the upcoming months as we install additional production lines in the Cambridge facility,” said Kevin Tracey, Protenergy’s president.
