Central Valley Meat, a meat processor founded in 1993, has announced it is to acquire beef firm Harris Ranch, comprising Harris Feeding Company and Harris Ranch Beef Company, for an undisclosed sum.
Harris Ranch Beef is described as California’s largest beef producer and the largest ranch on the west coast of the United States. Its retail product lineup includes fresh beef, mince, patties, speciality beef and ready meals.
Under the agreement, Harris Ranch Beef and Central Valley Meat will operate independently with both companies retaining their respective brands.
Commenting on the launch, Brian Coelho, president and chief executive officer of Central Valley Meat commented: “We have known and respected John Harris and Harris Ranch Beef for decades, and I am pleased to have this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to continue the business family-owned legacy and pursue its tremendous potential for growth here in the Central Valley. While Central Valley Meat Co. and Harris Ranch Beef will continue to operate independently, I expect both businesses and their respective customers to benefit from the companies shared knowledge, extensive resources and expanded product offering”.
