Nestle in talks to buy Edmonton's Champion Petfoods for US$2 billion: report

The company declined to comment on what it called “speculation in the market.”

“Rumours about Champion being sold have been circulating over the past few years and will continue for as long we deliver on our promise to make the world’s best pet food under our ACANA and ORIJEN brands,” the statement says.

“Champion Petfoods continues to be privately held with investment from our Canadian partner, (Toronto’s) Bedford Capital, and our vision remains — build trust with pet lovers everywhere.”

The company announced in 2017 it was building a 37,000-square-metre kitchen in Parkland County’s Acheson Industrial Park on Edmonton’s western border that would greatly expand its production capacity.

The site was expected to cost more than $200 million.

Chief executive Frank Burdzy said at the time there wasn’t enough room to expand the existing Morinville facility, but the site would continue current output and could add other products.
