Dawn Food Products Inc., a global bakery ingredient manufacturer and distributor in Jackson, has acquired an Ardent Mills ingredient mix facility in Ontario, Canada. Ardent Mills is based in Colorado. The deal closed on Friday, and terms were not disclosed.
Ardent Mills will continue to supply flour to the facility under Dawn’s ownership. It offers flour milling and has 40 flour mills and bakery mix facilities, along with a specialty bakery and mobile innovation center, all based in the U.S., Canada, and Puerto Rico.
“This mutually beneficial acquisition allows us to step away from sweet ingredient mixes and concentrate on flour and savory mixes,” says Dan Dye, CEO of Ardent Mills. “Our team members and customers in Canada will be well taken care of by Dawn, and we are committed to a smooth transition.”
Dawn partners with more than 40,000 artisanal and retail bakers, food service leaders, and manufacturers in more than 100 countries. It has more than 5,000 team members globally.
