Rich Products acquires Dorgel

Rich Products of Canada Ltd has acquired Dorgel Ltd & Elistan Foods, a manufacturer and marketer of frozen desserts and ice cream cakes sold across Canada.

The acquisition includes all aspects of Dorgel’s and Elistan’s business, including its entire product portfolio, manufacturing operations, research, and development capabilities.

“We have first-hand knowledge of Dorgel’s and Elistan’s capabilities,” said Aldo Belvedere, president, Canada Division, Rich Products Corporation. “We’re confident that their products will superbly complement our existing line.”

Dorgel and Elistan sell an expansive line of Dorgel-branded frozen desserts to top retailers across Canada.

Effective immediately, all 47 of Dorgel’s and Elistan’s Woodbridge, Ontario-based associates will join the Rich Products of Canada family. Owner Nick Lucchese joins Rich’s as vice-president, business development; Eric Cannataro, co-owner, joins Rich’s as plant manager.

“Current Dorgel customers will not experience significant changes to their current business interactions or sales relationships,” said Belvedere. “We anticipate a seamless transition.”
