Highbury Canco has renewed its agreement with Kraft Heinz Canada to produce Kraft Heinz products at its Leamington, Ont., facility.
The multi-year agreement is worth about $1 billion at retail value.
Highbury Canco has a long-standing relationship with Kraft Heinz Canada, producing some of Canada’s most beloved brands, including Heinz beans, Heinz tomato juice and Classico pasta sauce.
Highbury Canco operates from Leamington, where it employs more than 600 Canadians.
“As our largest customer, Kraft Heinz Canada uses about 180 million pounds of Ontario tomatoes in its products every year. This agreement helps support the entire Leamington community, and we are proud to continue our partnership with Kraft Heinz Canada,” said Sam Diab, president and chief executive officer of Highbury Canco.
