Statement from Weston Bakeries Limited re: WONDER® Bread in Canada
TORONTO, Nov. 16, 2012 /CNW/ - Weston Bakeries Limited makes WONDER® bread
and is licensed to use the registered trademark in Canada.
Hostess Brands makes Wonder bread and owns the trademark in the United States.
Today, Hostess Brands, the bankrupt maker of Twinkies and Wonder bread in the
United States, has moved to liquidate its business in the United States after
the company had set a Thursday deadline for striking employees to return to
work. This is a result of the company's decision to unwind its business and
sell off assets if plant operations didn't return to normal levels by 5 p.m.
Weston Bakeries Limited has no relationship with Hostess Brands' Wonder bread,
so Canadians can rest assured that freshly baked Canadian WONDER® bread will
continue to be available in stores nationwide. In Canada, WONDER® bread is
made with 100 per cent Canadian wheat and is completely free of artificial
preservatives and other chemical additives.
