Sandridge Foods Acquires RMH Foods20 June 2013
US - Sandridge Foods has acquired a majority interest in RMH Foods, a leader in fully cooked refrigerated and frozen entrees.
RMH Foods offers customers fully cooked retail, foodservice and specialized portion-control products utilizing Sous Vide, or cook-in-bag, technology.
This decision leverages Sandridge's strategy to produce innovative solutions for a growing customer base that demands fresh, great tasting food.
"We are truly excited to begin our relationship with RMH Foods. We both are third generation family businesses, our core values are aligned, and both families have the commitment to create clean label, great tasting food," said Mark D. Sandridge, CEO, Sandridge Food Corporation.
RMH Foods' Sous Vide technology will help to expand Sandridge's offerings by providing the capability to enter a new business segment that will now include "center of the plate" entrees – a complement to Sandridge's expansive line of fresh soups, salads, sides and sauces.
This collaboration will also strengthen Sandridge's ability to create and distribute a wider variety of products that allow for reduced sodium and no preservatives.
Located in Morton, Illinois, RMH Foods is well positioned to ship coast to coast coupled with Sandridge.
Under this agreement, RMH Foods will become a Sandridge Family Company, a part of Sandridge Food Corporation. Jon Rocke will remain on board as the RMH Foods President, and will receive extra support from the management team at Sandridge.
