Dawn Food acquires Burlington facility from Ardent
Ardent Mills announced it has completed the sale of its ingredient mix facility in Burlington, Ont. to Dawn Food Products Inc., a global bakery ingredient manufacturer and distributor.
Dawn Foods stated it is looking to expand its Canadian reach with this sweet ingredient business.
“This mutually beneficial acquisition allows us to step away from sweet ingredient mixes and concentrate on flour and savory mixes,” said Dan Dye, CEO of Ardent Mills. “Our team members and customers in Canada will be well taken care of by Dawn and we are committed to a smooth transition.”
Ardent Mills will continue to supply flour to this facility under Dawn’s ownership.
Ardent Mills’ operations and services are supported by 40 flour mills and bakery-mix facilities along with a specialty bakery and Mobile Innovation Centre, all located in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico.
Dawn Foods, headquartered in Jackson, Mich., partners with more than 40,000 artisanal and retail bakers, food service leaders and manufacturers located in more than 100 countries and has 5,000 team members globally
