Nestlé Canada says it will scale back its frozen food and pizza operations in Canada over the next six months.
The four brands that will no longer be sold in the freezer aisles of Canadian grocery stores are Delissio, Stouffer’s, Lean Cuisine and Life Cuisine.
The company said it is focusing on categories that support long-term business growth, including confectionery, coffee, ice cream, premium water and pet food.
Nestlé Canada President and CEO John Carmichael said the decision will allow Nestlé to invest more in its priority categories.
The company does not manufacture these products in Canada, so Canadian manufacturing facilities are not affected.
Nestlé says it will work with its retail partners to facilitate the withdrawal of these products from stores.
