Gay Lea Foods Acquires Italian Cheese Processor

Gay Lea Foods Co-operative Ltd., Canada, acquired Salerno Dairy, a Canada-based family-owned manufacturer of specialty Italian cheese.

"With this acquisition we are merging two of Ontario's best traditions—a farmer-owned co-operative and a family-owned business," says Paul Vickers, chairman of Gay Lea Foods. "We are excited about the opportunities this expansion will bring."

"We believe Gay Lea Foods will do an excellent job of carrying forward our heritage of quality and our dedication to fine cheese,” says Angelo Fidanza, chief executive officer of Salerno Dairy.

Salerno Dairy manufactures an extensive selection of traditional Italian cheeses, including hard, soft, semi-soft and shredded cheese and cheese blends under the Salerno and Gos & Gris brands in retail stores and major foodservice suppliers.
