Tree of Life Canada has acquired Legacy Distributors, an Ontario-based distributor known for its expertise in bakery, home meal replacement (HMR), ultra-fresh and bulk commodities, for an undisclosed amount.
“We’re elated to welcome Legacy and their vendor partners to the Tree of Life family. 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,” said Lisa MacNeil, president of Tree of Life Canada.
Despite the change in ownership, Legacy Distributors will maintain its operational independence, continuing to operate out of its Woodbridge, Ont. facility.
“This change is a positive for all of us,” said 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.”
