Ask anyone in the Maritimes or Maine who makes the best donut and they will say “Mrs. Dunster’s.”

Made according to a time-honored recipe developed by Ingrid Dunster, Mrs. Dunster’s donuts truly look and taste homemade. There is nothing ordinary about a Mrs. Dunster’s donut. Prepared using pure lard and double-sugared for extra sweetness, Mrs. Dunster’s donuts are in fact “apple-shaped” and unlike conventional donuts… they don’t have a hole!

Mrs. Dunster’s produces more than a million packages of donut products each year. These are widely distributed throughout the Maritimes and Maine. In many areas, these donuts have a near “cult” following. We receive numerous requests each year (from as far away as Texas and California) from visitors who have tried our donuts and are not able to purchase them at their local store. A truly iconic symbol of New Brunswick, Mrs. Dunster’s donuts offer homemade taste in every bite.

http://www.mrs-dunsters.com

“Much like our Maritime-famous donuts, Sussex has a history which is rich in tradition and character. It is our pleasure to be part of this community and to partner with the Sussex Mural Project.”

PotashCorp is the world’s largest fertilizer enterprise, by capacity, producing the three primary plant nutrients – potash, phosphate and nitrogen. Chief among these is potash, “the quality nutrient”, which improves the taste,texture and nutritional value of food.

In addition to fertilizer, PotashCorp produces animal feed supplements for livestock and industrial products used in everything from soft drinks to medicine.

The New Brunswick Division’s long term goals are:

  • To move closer to our goal of no harm to people, no accidents and no damage to the environment;
  • To have motivated and productive employees committed to our long term goals;
  • To operate the Division as cost-effectively as possible and provide long term employment for our employees;
  • To improve socio-economic well-being of our communities.
