Sysco Announces Acquisitions In Quebec, Ireland

In Canada, Sysco has broadline and specialty distribution facilities serving customers across Canada's 10 provinces and three territories.

Keelings Is Sysco's Third Acquisition in Ireland

The acquisition of Keelings' foodservice distribution business expands Sysco's presence and significantly strengthens its produce offering in Ireland. Having acquired Pallas Foods in 2009, Sysco acquired Crossgar Foodservice, a leading supplier in Northern Ireland, in August 2012.

The acquired Keelings business specializes in delivering fresh produce, employs 160 and has operations based in Dublin, Cork, Belfast and Wexford. The business will retain its existing brand identity and management team, and all employees will remain with the business.

Tim Geary, Chairman of Pallas Foods, said: "Keelings' foodservice business is a strong entity with excellent people, produce and customer relationships. This investment provides us additional strategic opportunities in Ireland and offers our existing customers, and those of Keelings, a wider and broader choice. We look forward to working with Keelings and positioning this investment for further growth in the years ahead."
