Lassonde Industries Inc. is buying U.S. fruit juice and drink company Apple & Eve for US$150-million to strengthen its presence in the United States.

Quebec-based Lassonde says the acquisition of Apple & Eve will also allow it to enter the branded juice business in the U.S.

Apple & Eve, based in Port Washington, N.Y., is a leading independent branded juice company in the U.S., with total annualized net sales of US$190-million.
