Oct 6 (Reuters) - Canada’s Colabor Group Inc GCL.TO, a wholesaler and distributor of food and non-food products, posted lower quarterly results hurt by lower sales in its distribution segment.

Third-quarter net income fell to C$3.9 million, or 18 Canadian cents a share, from C$4.7 million or 30 Canadian cents a share in the year-ago period.

Total sales fell to C$234.3 million from C$276.8 million.

The company said sales at its distribution segment, which accounts for more than half of its total sales, fell 22 percent to C$142 million as it lost a major contract in the restaurant sector.
