Kraft Heinz Canada and Highbury Canco extend Leamington partnership to 2027

Kraft Heinz Canada and Highbury Canco have agreed to partner in Leamington for another four years. The deal extends to 2027 and is expected to produce an estimated $1 billion; this is the third extension between the two organizations. 

“We’re proud to extend our agreement with Highbury Canco and look forward to continuing to have Kraft Heinz Canada products produced by the talented and hard-working employees at its Leamington facility for another four years,” says Simon Laroche, president of Kraft Heinz Canada. “We’ve built strong local partnerships across Canada, our second largest market globally, for over 100 years and this new deal signals our continued commitment to being a strong partner to Canadian communities.”

Highbury Canco employs more than 600 Canadians at its 2.1-million-square-foot facility in Leamington, producing Heinz beans, Heinz tomato juice and Classico pasta sauce. The facility also produces the tomato paste that is used in all the Heinz Ketchup made at Kraft Heinz’s Mont Royal facility in Montreal.

“Extending our partnership with Kraft Heinz Canada for another four years provides significant stability for our facility and our workforce,” says Sam Diab, CEO at Highbury Canco. “This is a mutually beneficial alliance that is of great significance to the Leamington community, and for all the Canadians that can continue to enjoy Kraft Heinz Canada products being produced at facilities such as ours.”
