Tree of Life Acquires Italian Food Importer
MISSISSAUGA, February 2019 – Effective February 8, 2019 a transaction was completed whereby Tree of Life purchased Numage Trading Inc. Founded by Gesualdo Mastruzzo in 1981, Numage has a rich history of bringing authentic Italian foods to Canada. Gesualdo and his team have grown the business into one of the most respected sources for Italian foods with an assortment of more than 35 brands. “We are thrilled that our great tradition will continue as my family and I join Tree of Life and continue to manage our Numage brands under the Tree of Life umbrella,” said Mastruzzo.
“We are proud to add such strong new team members and brands to the Tree of Life portfolio and look forward to the brands’ growth with the access they now have to all of Canada with Tree of Life’s national sales, marketing and distribution services,” said Moody.
An integration plan will unlock the nationwide opportunities that await the Numage brands. That integration process will occur over the next few months and until further notice, Numage will continue to operate out of its facility in Vaughan, Ontario.
This continues our strategic approach to the Canadian marketplace and broadens our assortment appeal with our customers across Canada. More than ever, it enlivens our purpose of Helping Canada Eat Well and Live Well.
