Beatrice Foods Canada

Beatrice Foods Canada

Beatrice Foods Canada Ltd. is a Toronto, Ontario based dairy unit of Parmalat Canada. The Canadian unit of Beatrice Foods was founded in 1969 and separated from its American parent firm Beatrice Foods in 1978.

Consequently, Beatrice's Canadian unit was not affected by the buyout of its founders and remained in business as one of Canada's largest food processing concerns. In 1997 Beatrice Foods Canada was acquired by Parmalat. Parmalat decided to drop the Beatrice name from the company's products and was reinstated in late 2005 during which the Italian parent company was being investigated.
