Since its inauguration in 2017, Kingston is our headquarter for North America. The dynamic local team counting around 130 passionate individuals has been instrumental in propelling us to the forefront as Canada’s #1 fruit prep manufacturer. The Kingston operation is a full-fledged organization that entails production from which we cater to the Canadian market as well as the East Coast of the United States.

Our strategic advantage in North America lies in our carefully planned footprint. Situated close to Montreal, Toronto, and the East Coast of the United States, Kingston’s strategic location ensures our strong presence in both Canadian and American markets, allowing us to serve a large base of customers. With access to the Montreal port, we can also receive fruit and raw materials from all over the world.

Our success is also driven by the flat hierarchy that fosters an entrepreneurial spirit, that has led to a very customer-centric thinking and approach, enabling the development of innovative creative solutions. One example of this is sugar reduction. “We have developed options to offer calorie-reduced products, eventually delivering high-quality products for our customers’ operations”, explains Uwe Schnell, Business Manager for North America.

Moreover, there is global support for regional businesses. That is why we feel like a global team while driving growth in Canada and the United States.

Our new factory in Utah is a very good addition to our operations. The new Logan factory, which will open in 2024, is a good fit between supply and demand on the markets we serve. We are already working on finding new, local suppliers for raw materials to implement a highly sustainable supply chain, fostering economic growth for regional and local businesses.
