Lactalis Canada Completes Kraft Heinz Acquisition


TORONTO — Lactalis Canada has completed the acquisition of Kraft Heinz’s grated-cheese business. As part of the transaction, Lactalis Canada has acquired production capability at Kraft Heinz’s plant in Montreal.

“The integration of Kraft Heinz’s grated-cheese business enhances Lactalis Canada’s capacity and capability to provide Canadian consumers with quality household brands and perfectly complements our growing portfolio of broad-based dairy products with the addition of parmesan,” says Mark Taylor, president and CEO of Lactalis Canada. “This transaction reinforces our long-term investment in Canada and its food-processing sector and marks Lactalis Canada’s foray into this part of the category.”

This addition builds on Lactalis Canada’s previous acquisition of Kraft Heinz Canada’s natural cheese business in 2019, as well as the March 2021 acquisition of Agropur’s Ultima Foods Inc.
