Canada Bread to be sold for $1.83 billion to Mexico's Grupo Bimbo

TORONTO - A Mexican company is buying Canada Bread (TSX:CBY) in a deal valued at $1.83 billion with the support of its parent Maple Leaf Foods (TSX:MFI).

Grupo Bimbo is offering $72 per cash for all shares of Canada Bread, maker of Dempsters and other food brands.
