Lakeside Foods, a Wisconin, US-based producer of frozen foods and canned vegetables is set to acquire the Arkensas-based Good Eats Food for an undisclosed sum, according to an article in Food Business News.
Promoted as “veggies with a twist”, the Good Eats Food range includes mashed cauliflower, soups and frozen sweetcorn marketed under the brands Ruthie’s Twisted Harvest and Serious Bean Co.
Commenting on the deal, Lakeside Foods president and chief executive officer Glen Tellock said: “Innovation is the cornerstone of our strategy. Consumer preferences, and therefore customer needs, are evolving faster than ever. Good Eats injects a shot of entrepreneurial spirit into Lakeside, which will help us more quickly advance around this key strategic priority. Lakeside, on the other hand, provides the needed scale for Ser!ous Bean Co. and Ruthie’s Twisted Harvest to efficiently expand”.
The deal for Good Eats Food follows Lakeside Foods’ acquisition of seafood, cheese and vegetable producer Riverside Foods in April.
