DENVER, Colo. — Ardent Mills has sold its ingredient-mix facility in Burlington, Ont. to Dawn Food Products Inc.
“This mutually beneficial acquisition allows us to step away from sweet ingredient mixes and concentrate on flour and savory mixes,” says Dan Dye, CEO of Ardent Mills. “Our team members and customers in Canada will be well taken care of by Dawn and we’re committed to a smooth transition.”
With Dawn Foods looking to become a player in the sweet-ingredient business, the deal allows the global bakery-ingredient manufacturer and distributor to expand its Canadian reach. Ardent Mills will continue to supply flour to its old facility under Dawn’s ownership.
The deal between Ardent Mills and Dawn closed on June 21.
