Mississauga, Ont. – Mondelez Canada’s flour mill in Mississauga, Ont. is now part of a U.S.-based flour-milling and ingredient company.
Ardent Mills of Denver, Colo. acquired the plant this week. Details of the transaction, which is expected to close in the next few weeks, were not disclosed.
The mill produces hard and soft wheat flour for its Canadian bakeries and a number of food manufacturing customers.
Ardent Mills says the Mississauga facility will add to the company’s capabilities to serve food manufacturers across Canada. The more than 30 employees will join Ardent Mills when the transaction closes.
Dan Dye, CEO of Ardent Mills, says the acquisition is part of the company’s growth plan and will help the company better serve customers.
“We want to nourish this facility and its people as we serve our Canadian customers, and ultimately consumers, with safe, nutritious, grain-based products,” says Dye.
“We are excited about this mill’s future and we’re confident we can leverage our innovation and supply chain capabilities after the transaction closes.”
Ardent Mills also has milling operations in Saskatoon, Sask., and Montreal, as well as a bakery-mix facility in Burlington, Ont. and an administrative/sales office in Brampton, Ont.
