Owings Mills-based Medifast to expand into Canada

Medifast Inc., of Owings Mills, a provider of weight-loss products and services, said it plans to expand its international presence by launching into Canada in the first quarter of 2014.

The initial expansion will take place through Medifast Direct, the company’s e-commerce sales channel, and Medifast Medical Providers, a network of health care providers that will offer Medifast’s program and products.

Medifast launched its weight-control product line into Mexico in June 2012 by partnering with a Mexican pharmaceutical obesity control company, and opened its first international weight-control center in Mexico City in September 2013.
