Bakery ingredient, product and supply leader BakeMark has purchased a brand and two facilities from CSM Bakery Solutions.

Pico Rivera, California-based BakeMark announced Feb. 15 the acquisition of the Multifoods brand and manufacturing facilities in Elyria, Ohio, and Spartanburg, South Carolina.

The Multifoods line of bakery mixes and bases joins BakeMark’s extensive portfolio of brands, which includes Westco, BakeSense, Best Brands, BakeQwik, Trigal Dorado, C’est Vivant and Sprinkelina.

The two new manufacturing plants will supplement three existing BakeMark plants, which are located in Pico Rivera; Richmond, British Columbia; and Calgary, Alberta.  

“Increased customer demand coupled with our strategy to grow our ingredients business created the need for these acquisitions,” says Jim Parker, BakeMark’s president and CEO. “Adding the Multifoods brand and these manufacturing facilities will certainly help us better support our customers and industry partners and help us meet our goal of driving success for them and all our stakeholders well into the future. It’s an exciting time.”
