Global bakery ingredient manufacturer and distributor Dawn Food Products has announced a completed deal with Ardent Mills, the leading flour supplier in North America, to acquire its mix facility in Burlington, Ontario and sweet goods business in Canada.
This business decision expands Dawn’s reach to its Canadian customers.
“The acquisition of Ardent Mills’ Burlington plant will provide increased access to our industry-leading products for our Canadian customers. As we continue to focus our business on bakery ingredients, expanding our capabilities in Canada allows us to deliver our targeted insights, innovations, products and bakery expertise to even more bakeries across the country, empowering them to achieve their aspirations,” said Carrie Jones-Barber CEO of Dawn Foods.
This acquisition allows both companies to continue to focus on their core capabilities – Dawn on its bakery ingredient offerings and Ardent Mills on its flour business. Following the deal, Ardent Mills will continue to supply flour to this facility under Dawn’s ownership. The deal between Dawn and Ardent Mills closed on June 21, 2019.
