Denver, CO–Bakery ingredient manufacturer and distributor Dawn Food Products has acquired an Ardent Mills ingredient mix facility in Burlington, Ontario. Dawn Foods will take over the sweet ingredient business and expand its Canadian reach, according to a press release, and Ardent Mills will continue to supply flour to the facility.
“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, in the release. “Our team members and customers in Canada will be well taken care of by Dawn and we are committed to a smooth transition.”
Dawn Foods, which is headquartered in Jackson, Michigan, partners with more than 40,000 artisanal and retail bakers, food service leaders and manufacturers in more than 100 countries.
