Dawn Foods has purchased a Canadian facility from Ardent Mills, taking over the company’s sweet ingredient business and expanding its reach north of the border.

The ingredient mix facility is located in Burlington, Ontario. Ardent Mills will continue to supply flour to the facility under Dawn’s ownership.

“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.”

The deal between Ardent Mills and Dawn closed on June 21.
