Highline acquires Western Canadian organic mushroom grower
Ontario-based mushroom giant Highline has acquired B.C.-based All Seasons Mushrooms
Leamington, Ont.-based Highline Produce Limited has acquired Western Canada’s All Seasons Mushrooms.
Known for its commitment to high-quality mushrooms and consistent, local supply, All Seasons grows approximately 19 million pounds of mushrooms per year from three facilities in British Columbia and one in Alberta. It was founded in 1997, and is one of the most prominent certified organic mushroom growers in Canada, according to a Highline press release.
And as a fully integrated mushroom business with five facilities in Ontario and Quebec, Highline is the largest operator in the mushroom industry in Canada, marketing approximately 58 million pounds (26.3 million kg) of mushrooms per year.
“Highline was a natural choice for All Seasons to partner with because we have a shared culture that recognizes the importance of our dedicated employees, customers, and suppliers,” says All Season’s CEO and founder, Frank Moscone.
“I look forward to working with Frank Moscone and his team as we combine these two excellent mushroom companies. Both Highline and All Seasons are known for their quality, customer relationships, and innovation, including our leading positions as suppliers of organic mushrooms,” adds Glenn Martin, Highline’s CEO.
According to Highline, all of Highline and All Seasons’ combined nine locations will remain in operation with business as usual for employees (1,400 combined) across Canada.
