Bamford Produce, Urban Barns Ink Distribution Pact

Mississauga, Ontario-based Bamford Produce Co. Ltd. and Claire, Quebec-based Urban Barns Foods Inc. have entered into a distribution agreement for parts of Canada.

Under the arrangement, Bamford will be the primary distributor of vegetables raised using Urban Barns’ Cubic Farming method for all of Ontario and parts of eastern Canada, excluding Ottawa.

“We are very pleased to expand our reach into Canada’s largest market,” Richard Groome, Urban Barns’ president and chief executive officer, said in a news release. “With over 130 years of experience, Bamford Produce is the perfect fit in helping us provide consistent, healthy and fresh vegetables year-round.”

In particular, Bamford will focus on upscale food service providers, such as four- and five-star hotels, restaurants and catering companies, according to the release. The memorandum of understanding does not cover retail grocery stores.
