TORONTO — CanGro Foods Inc., a marketer of canned fruit, tomatoes and vegetables under such brands as Del Monte, Aylmer and Ideal, said it plans to close or sell its vegetable and fruit processing facilities in Exeter and St. Davids, Ont., by March 31.

"These actions follow CanGro’s 2006 Chambly, Quebec, vegetable plant closure as CanGro will now shift to outsourcing its canned vegetable and fruit requirements," said David Hoyles, vice-president of operations.
