Cascades Inc., Kingsey Falls, Que., Canada, this week completed the sale of Dopaco Inc., its paper cup and carton converting business for the quick-service restaurant and foodservice industries, to Reynolds Group Holdings for a cash consideration of $400 million. Net proceeds from the transaction should amount to approximately $337 million and will mainly be used to pay down Cascades' debt. In connection with the transaction, Cascades will continue to supply boxboard to Dopaco, through a five year non-exclusive supply agreement.

Dopaco operates six plants (two in Ontario and four in the U.S.) and converts some 165,000 metric tons of boxboard a year.
