We are leaders in our communities, leaders in sustainability, and leaders in connecting with our consumers. Our headquarters is in Mississauga, ON, but we proudly have nearly 2,500 employees spread across seven manufacturing plants in Quebec, British Columbia, Ontario, and Tennessee.

Our majority shareholder, Kruger Inc., is a Canadian-based manufacturing company in a variety of other industry sectors including renewable energy, publication papers, forest products, paperboard and packaging, wines and spirits, and recycling.

We know our people are our greatest competitive advantage, and we strive to help them grow, succeed, innovate, and make our company even better each and every day.
