Lactalis Canada takes over premium dessert manufacturer Marie Morin Canada. This acquisition will see Lactalis Canada entering the dessert category, in both the Canadian and U.S. markets.

The transaction will also include Marie Morin Canada’s production facility in Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville, Que., and the addition of 52 employees. It’s important to note that this acquisition is specific to Marie Morin Canada and has no relation to the activities of Marie Morin France.

“We are delighted to add Marie Morin Canada and its product line of signature desserts to the Lactalis Canada family,” said Mark Taylor, president & CEO, Lactalis Canada. “As part of our broad-based dairy portfolio that continues to evolve and expand to meet consumer trends and demands, this acquisition will enable Lactalis Canada to pursue its strategy in developing desserts for the North American market and will further expand our product offering for our valued retail and foodservice customers.”

With fresh and frozen desserts in glass jars, Marie Morin Canada was established in Québec in 2004 by David Morin and Sophie Le Vexier. Marie Morin Canada manufactures and markets its traditional French recipes in North America.
