Roquette Canada welcomed four officials from the City of Portage la Prairie and the RM of Portage la Prairie for a special unveiling of a name change for the roadway leading to their facility.

Roquette Canada communications and public affairs manager Michelle Finley shares the news.

"We had the mayor and the reeve and both CAOs out to the site to help us officially rename Rd 65 N to 'Roquette Road'," says Finley. "It's another way to recognize the milestones that we're hitting this month as we head toward our grand opening on November 17th. By renaming that stretch of road, we're officially on the map."

She says the sign is displayed at the corner of the intersection of Simplot Road and Roquette Road.

"We unveiled the Roquette Road sign. It's up there right at the corner of what is now Simplot Road and Roquette Road," continues Finley.

Finley adds when they turn in to come to work, they can now see that new sign up there and know that Roquette is home in Portage la Prairie, and is very excited to be here.
