Maple Leaf Acquires Lightlife

Quick recap: A little more than two years ago, Pinnacle Foods acquired Gardein, and Monde Nissin acquired Quorn. Four months ago, Tyson Foods blew everyone's minds by buying a 5-percent stake in Beyond Meat. Today, Canada's leading packaged meat producer acquired Lightlife in a $140 million deal. And so the plant-protein revolution continues!
