CoolBrands International Inc., Markham, Ontario, has purchased the Kinnet Dairy DSD ice cream distribution business from Parmalat.

Kinnet's ice cream business is located primarily in Georgia. CoolBrands announced last month that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Eskimo Pie Frozen Distribution, Inc., acquired the entire Kinnet Dairy ice cream distribution business, including customer lists, route lists, delivery vehicles, trademarks and inventory, from Parmalat's subsidiary, Farmland Dairies LLC, for an undisclosed cash purchase price.
