Organic giant Taylor Farms acquires Toronto produce distribution
Taylor Farms has acquired FreshPoint’s Toronto operations, effective March 28, according to a news release from the company.
The fresh-cut vegetable operation will continue to serve current FreshPoint customers and facilitate further growth of Taylor Farms in Canada, according to the release.
“We are excited to add our first operation in Canada to the Taylor Farms North American Network and grateful to Sysco and FreshPoint for working closely with us to ensure a smooth transition for associates and customers,” Bruce Taylor, chairman and CEO of Taylor Farms, said in the release.
Mark Campion, president of Taylor Farms Retail, will have leadership responsibility for the Taylor Farms Canada facility and Kevin Silver has been appointed as general manager.
Taylor Farms is a North American producer of salads and healthy fresh foods. Taylor Farms is grounded in a commitment to quality, innovation, sustainability and food safety.
Taylor Farms is family-owned and based in “The Salad Bowl of the World” Salinas, California. While Taylor grows conventional produce as well as organic, it is heavily invested in organic vegetable growing through companies such as Earthbound Farm and Mission Ranches, which it acquired in 2019.
