Farinart, a manufacturer of cereal blends, baking mixes, sprouted grains and specialty flours, acquires all the assets of Malterie Frontenac.

Elisabeth Brasseur, Farinart’s VP-sales and innovation, commented, “The integration of Malterie Frontenac into the Farinart group is a significant strategic milestone for our business. The acquisition marks an exciting chapter in the company’s growth and innovation journey. It aligns with our commitment to better anticipate and service the needs of our customers, as well as providing them with exceptional value. With more than 60 per cent of our sales in the U.S. market, we are thrilled to complement our current specialty grain offering with the additional sprouting and malting expertise and capabilities to better meet the demands of this market.”

Founded in 2006 and based in Thetford Mines, Que., Malterie Frontenac originally served craft breweries. However, over time founder and master brewer-maltster, Bruno Vachon, developed a sprouting and malting expertise to meet the needs of bakeries. The company mainly processes local grains such as barley, wheat, rye and oats.
