Weston Foods buys Rubschlager Baking

Weston Foods, a subsidiary of George Weston Ltd., Toronto, completed the purchase of Rubschlager Baking Corp., Chicago, on May 5. Rubschlager has a 100-year history of baking a full range of authentic, high-quality rye breads and products for the North American market. Its products include a wide range of deli-style cocktail breads (its signature product), traditional square breads, 100% whole rye Rye-Ola bread, sandwich bread and mini-bread chips.

“Rubschlager will bring world-class, authentic rye products and capabilities to complement Weston's broad portfolio of bakery products,” says Kevin McDonough, president of Weston Foods' Frozen Division. “We plan to offer these great rye products to our customers in Canada and the U.S. through our existing sales network.”

Weston Foods will work with Paul and Joan Rubschlager, who will continue to be ambassadors of the Rubschlager brand and help transition the business to Weston Foods ownership. The acquisition supports West Foods’ commitment to continue to grow and offer best-in-class, innovative and quality bakery products to the North American market.

Rubschlager Baking Corp. was founded in Chicago in 1913 by Fred Rubschlager as a full-line bakery named Rubschlager Brothers Bakery.
