Montreal – Alasko Foods Inc. has acquired Ontario company FooDelicious Inc.
Alasko is a Quebec company that provides premium quality frozen fruits and vegetables that are grown around the world. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
On its website the company says since its founding in 1989 it has grown to become one of Canada’s largest importers of frozen fruit and vegetables. The company has expanded into the US and Australia.
In 2010, says the website, it “joined the Catterton Partners. Catterton has more than $2.5 billion of equity capital under active management.”
In a statement, Alasko says acquiring FooDelicious will add “an established Canadian foodservice brand and a best-in-class packing facility to [Alasko’s] existing network and leading global supply chain for frozen fruits and vegetables.”
Alasko says FooDelicious’ customers will not have any disruptions in service and will “benefit from Alasko Foods’ global network of 100+ agri-food producers and processors across 30 countries.”
The FooDelicious facility will add “an additional focal point of production, warehousing and distribution activity,” says Alasko Foods.
“We are delighted to welcome Dave Black and the entire FooDelicious team to the Alasko Foods family and we are looking forward to growing production at the FooDelicious facility,” says Michael Vineberg, Alasko Foods CEO.
Alaska says on its website that it imports, prepares and distributes more than 80 million pounds of frozen foods. The company says it markets products under its own label and also does private label brands.
