Ardent Mills and Dawn Foods sign a deal that allows both entities to focus on their core offerings

Dawn Foods has acquired an Ardent Mills ingredient mix facility in Burlington, Ont. to take over the sweet ingredient business and expand its Canadian reach.

Ardent Mills will continue to supply flour to this 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,” said 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 Foods closed on June 21, 2019.


Ardent Mills’ operations and services are supported by 40 flour mills and bakery-mix facilities along with a specialty bakery and Mobile Innovation Center, located in the U.S., Canada and Puerto Rico.
