Leamington, Ont. – Highline Mushrooms has acquired Prairie Mushrooms, an Abbotsford, B.C.-based company who says that it was the first to “successfully perfect the art of growing portabellas.”
In a statement, Highline Mushrooms says the acquisition will “further strengthen [its] leading Western Canadian operations.”
The terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Highline adds that acquiring Prairie Mushrooms “enhances its position as both the largest organic mushroom grower and the only coast-to-coast mushroom grower in Canada.”
Highline now has five farms in Western Canada, in B.C. and Alberta. Highline currently has operations in Western Canada as All Seasons’ Mushrooms. The statement says that post-acquisition, the combination will operate as Highline Mushrooms.
Both companies have been operating since the 1960s. Highline says it’s the largest mushroom grower in Canada, and offers sliced mushrooms, triple-washed mushrooms, a Sauté Blend and a Gourmet Blend, organic mushrooms, and dried mushrooms.
Prairie Mushrooms offers white button mushrooms, crimini brown mushrooms, oyster mushrooms, portabella mushrooms, shiitake mushrooms and dried mushrooms.
