Weston Foods, through its subsidiary Maplehurst Bakeries, LLC, has purchased Rubschlager Baking Corporation of Chicago, Illinois.
Rubschlager has a 100-year history of baking a full range of authentic, high-quality rye breads and related products for the North American market. Rubschlager’s products are sold across the United States and Canada, and include a wide range of deli-syle 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 our broad portfolio of bakery products,” said Kevin McDonough, President of Weston Foods’ Frozen Division. “We plan to offer these great rye products to our customers through our existing sales network, including Weston Bakeries, Ready Bake and Maplehurst Bakeries. We are also excited to work with Paul and Joan Rubschlager, who will continue to be ambassadors of the Rubschlager brand and help transition the business.”
As a strong rye bread brand, Rubschlager provides Maplehurst with the know-how and capabilities to produce the product. This acquisition supports Maplehurst’s commitment to continue to grow and offer best-in-class, innovative and quality bakery products to the North American market.
