From: Food in Canada
St-Hyacinthe, Que. – Olymel L.P. has acquired an Ontario poultry slaughtering and processing company.
Olymel made the announcement in a statement that Pinty’s Delicious Foods Inc., which is based in Burlington, Ont., is now part of the Olymel stable.
Pinty’s manufactures fully cooked products and other related products and employs 360 people. The company has three processing plants in Ontario – Port Colborne, Paris and Oakville.
Pinty’s products are found across Canada and in the U.S. under the brands Pinty’s Food Service, Pinty’s Pub & Grill, Pinty’s Eat Well, Pinty’s Perfect Portions and Pinty’s Delicious Food Inc.
The company was founded in 1943 by Ed Pintwala. It supplies its products to restaurants, delis and retailers, and recently introduced a new line of beef burgers, bottled sauces and kettle potato chips.
Olymel says the current employees will stay on and both companies “will continue their activities separately and independently.”
The acquisition is part of Olymel’s strategy to position itself “as the leader of the pork and poultry slaughtering and processing sector” in Canada, says the statement.
Olymel owns seven poultry slaughtering and processing establishments in Quebec, Ontario and New Brunswick, and distributes its products under the Olymel, Flamingo and Galco brands.
