Puratos Canada has announced the strategic acquisition of Sandel Foods Inc (SFI), one of the leading fruit fillings producers in Western Canada.
“We are very excited and look forward to working with a strong-valued, family-oriented, and customer-centric company. Finding a partner in Puratos gives us the confidence that the business will continue to grow on a global level and that Sandel Foods will gain access to new technologies and industry-leading research & development opportunities,” said Wade Godin, Commercial Director of Sandel Foods.
As reliable partners in innovation, Puratos offers a full range of innovative products and application expertise. The Mississauga facility has an Innovation Centre, four production lines, a full R&D team and access to consumer research such as Taste Tomorrow, the world’s largest bakery, patisserie, and chocolate consumer survey.
This partnership will afford SFI access to new customers, technologies, R&D and marketing resources, allowing them to grow and expand their geographical sales offerings.
“We strongly believe that this strategic acquisition will be mutually beneficial and allow growth for both parties. The experienced team at SFI and its manufacturing platform produce high-quality and differentiated products which will enable us to expand our fillings portfolio and capabilities and enlarge our footprint in western North America. Additionally, SFI’s organic and preservative-free offerings align with Puratos’ proactive approach to consumer well-being. Through our cleaner label strategy, we are addressing increasing consumer demand for transparency and offering products that meet ever-changing dietary needs and lifestyle choices,” said Edouard Pot, President of Puratos Canada.
