US: Amish Naturals acquires Schlabach Bakery
Natural and organic food specialist Amish Naturals has announced that it has acquired the Schlabach Amish Wholesale Bakery in Benton, Ohio.
Amish Naturals, also based in Ohio, did not disclose the financial terms of the deal.
Founded 30 years ago, Schlabach produces a wide range of all-natural premium foods, including Amish recipes for granola nutritional bars, and other whole grain cereal products.
Currently, the Schlabach range is marketed through retail chains such as Whole Foods Market, Giant Eagle, Dutch Valley and Van Kampen.
Amish Naturals said Schlabach would continue to manufacture its complete line of gourmet granola products at its current location following the acquisition.
"This is an exciting time for Amish Naturals," said CEO David Skinner. "The Amish bakery products are very high quality, filled with natural ingredients, and they fit perfectly with the Amish Naturals' mission. We are thrilled that Schlabach Bakery recognised Amish Naturals as a natural fit for expanding their distribution and production capabilities. Also, the reorganisation of our sales divisions will fit perfectly with the company's goals to offer the finest Amish-made food products to markets nationwide."
Troy Treangen, Amish Naturals' executive vice president and chief operating officer, added: "With this addition, Amish Naturals now manufactures products in nine different grocery categories, all of which carry our high standards for Amish quality."
The Amish Naturals' range now features premium organic pastas, all-natural pastas, all-natural ketchup, salad dressings, fruit spreads, barbeque sauces, and gourmet mustards.
