Deal aligns with Tree of Life's strategy to strengthen its market presence.
Distributor Tree of Life Canada has acquired Ontario-based Legacy Distributors.
Legacy Distributors specializes in bakery and home meal replacement, ultra-fresh and bulk commodities.
“We’re elated to welcome Legacy and their vendor partners to the Tree of Life family,” stated Lisa MacNeil, president of Tree of Life Canada, in a press release. “Our portfolio continues to grow, and the Legacy addition further satisfies the unique selection of food and beverages that we bring to Canadian consumers. It also expands our reach to consumers with Legacy’s existing third-party logistic (3PL) capabilities.”
The acquisition aligns with Tree of Life Canada's strategy to strengthen its market presence and enhance its capabilities in the food and beverage distribution landscape.
Legacy will continue to operate independently out of its Woodbridge, Ont. facility.
“This change is a positive for all of us,” stated Tony Ntentes, president of Legacy Distributors. “We eagerly anticipate the prospect of collaborating with the Tree of Life team and are excited about the opportunities that this promises to bring forth."
