Humanity Bakeries – a Quebec-based investment platform backed by Champlain Financial Corporation – has announced the acquisition of Les Aliments 2000, a manufacturer of pizza products.
Founded in 1980, Aliments 2000 initially specialised in the artisanal manufacture of pizza dough and has since diversified its offering to pie crusts, pizza balls and sauces. The Quebec company’s products are available throughout grocery stores either under private label or under its own brands Pâte 2000, Pizza Artizan and PizzéDélic.
Humanity Bakeries was established earlier this year by an investor group led by Champlain and the platform focuses on the bakery and pastry industry.
The deal will see Aliments 2000 join Humanity Bakeries’ product portfolio, joining the likes of Maison Isabelle – which specialises in the manufacture of four-quarter-style cakes – and Boulangerie-Pâtisserie Dumas, a producer of puff pastry, croissants and vol-au-vents.
Following the transaction, Aliments 2000 will now be led by Dominque Bohec, president and CEO of Humanity Bakeries.
The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
