The deal, for an unspecified sum, has gone through even as Yoplait itself prepares for a change of ownership. Liberté has been owned for the last six years by Toronto-based management company Pineridge Group. The company is based in Montreal, with plants in Brossard, Quebec, and Toronto. The company posted revenue of CAD175 million (USD174 million) in 2009, selling mostly within Canada but also exporting to the US.
