A deal between H.J. Heinz Company and Highbury Canco Corporation to purchase the Leamington Heniz facility is now complete.

Effective June 27, the factory will cease to be operated by Heinz, and Highbury Canco will take over all aspects of the operation of the Leamington factory.

“Now that the deal has concluded, the Highbury Canco Corporation is fully focused on establishing a strong production base in Leamington for Heinz and further strengthening our own brand. The HCC team is very excited about this venture and we are committed to growth and success over the coming years.” Pradeep Sood, Director, Highbury Canco Corporation.
