Toronto – Lactalis Canada will add Kraft Heinz’s grated cheese business to its portfolio as the group’s U.S. affiliate completes its acquisition of Kraft Heinz’s natural, grated, cultured and specialty cheese businesses in the U.S. and entire international cheese business outside North America.

Under the terms of the agreement announced on Sept. 15, 2020, the acquisition includes the Kraft Heinz grated cheese business in Canada. As part of the deal, Lactalis Canada acquires production capability, which remains at Kraft Heinz’s plant in Montreal.
