Harvest Meat Acquires Randal Farms Distribution Network

14 March 2013

US - US distributor of protein products to retail and foodservice customers, Harvest Meat Company, has acquired some of the distribution assets of Randall Farms from Randall Foods, Inc.

The financial terms of the deal have not been disclosed.

Harvest will assume operation of Randall's distribution centre in Los Angeles.

"We are continuing to invest in the growth of our business. We are branching out and building additional scale around the same fundamental principles that have guided our company for more than 20 years," said Harvest CEO Jay Leavy.

"The Randall distribution business is a good fit for Harvest. We look forward to providing our new customers with the same exceptional service, reliable delivery, superior products and competitive prices that have been hallmarks of Harvest Meat Company since 1989."

Following the sale, Randall Foods will continue processing and marketing its value-added processed fresh meat products, including the company's Moist & Tender Chicken, Easy Does It Meal tray packs, marinated meat products and other gourmet lines.

"By selling our bulk distribution business, we can focus even more on our processing operation and on delivering the high-quality, value-added products that our customers expect," said Stan Bloom, Randall CEO.

"We know our bulk customers are in good hands with Harvest."
