Stonewall Kitchen, the US speciality foods firm, has announced it has entered into an agreement to acquire the Vermont Village brand of organic applesauce and apple cider vinegar, with the deal expected to close in September.
Produced by the Village Cannery of Vermont since 1995, the Vermont Village brand has largely specialized in organic applesauce. More recently it added a line of raw and organic apple cider vinegars which are described as being used for a wide variety of applications, from culinary ingredients, to body care, daily health shots and cocktails.
Commenting on the launch, Stonewall Kitchen CEO John Stiker said: “We can’t think of a better addition to our family of brands. We have greatly admired the Vermont Village brand and its superior quality applesauce and vinegar products, a line that is complementary to our current offerings of premium specialty foods. Both brands share similar values of an authentic New England heritage, simple ingredients, exciting category presence and expanding distribution”.
