Canada's Maple Leaf Foods makes its second acquisition of a meatless brand, Field Roast.
'Field Roast—which reported sales of $38 million—is known for its grain-based meats and Chao dairy-free cheese slices.' Says VegNews.
“The acquisition of Field Roast complements and expands our portfolio in the fast-growing North American market for alternative proteins," Maple Leaf CEO Michael McCain said. "It also aligns with our vision to be a leader in sustainable protein and create shared value through making a positive social impact. Field Roast has built brand leadership through focusing on quality, craftsmanship, and taste, and its acquisition will allow Maple Leaf to fuel growth in the category through investment, brand building and innovation.”
VegNews added "This is the second vegan acquisition for the meat giant as it acquired plant-based meat brand Lightlife for $140 million in February. An unnamed source close to the vegan brand reports that Field Roast CEO David Lee will step down once the acquisition is complete."
