BakeMark announced that it had reached an agreement with CSM Bakery Solutions to buy the Multifoods brand of mixes and bases to expand its product portfolio.
The leading manufacturer and distributor of bakery ingredients, products, and supplies will also acquire two manufacturing facilities from CSM as part of the agreement. The facilities are located in Elyria, Ohio and Spartanburg, South Carolina.
“Increased customer demand coupled with our strategy to grow our ingredients business created the need for these acquisitions,” says Jim Parker, BakeMark President and CEO. “Adding the Multifoods brand and these manufacturing facilities will certainly help us better support our customers and industry partners and help us meet our goal of driving success for them and all our stakeholders well into the future. It’s an exciting time.”
The Multifoods line of bakery mixes and bases will join BakeMark’s vast lineup of exclusive brands, which includes Westco, BakeSense, BakeQwik, Trigal Dorado, C’est Vivant, and Sprinkelina.
“The Multifoods brand brings a rich history of product quality and customer loyalty, and is a perfect fit into our exclusive portfolio of the industry’s finest brands,” says David Lopez, Director of Marketing for BakeMark. “With an expanded solutions offering, we look forward to meeting more of our customers’ needs across the U.S. and Canada, and partnering more with our customers on their successes.”
