Lipman Family Farms has entered into a definitive agreement to purchase Ontario-based greenhouse grower and distributor of tomatoes and vegetables Huron Produce.
The addition of Huron will enable Lipman to offer hothouse and field-grown tomatoes and vegetables year-round. Huron has operations in Canada, the U.S. and Mexico.
Lipman COO Darren Micelle said that the acquisition broadens Lipman’s distribution footprint, and that the company hopes to leverage new opportunities with the addition of its own proprietary varieties into the protected agriculture space, and said that Lipman has new products in the works.
The acquisition is expected to close in April.
