American food manufacturer C.H. Guenther & Son (CHG) has acquired fellow US business Mid South Baking Company.
Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
The acquisition is San Antonio, Texas-based CHG’s second this year, following the purchase of German bakery supplier WBack in January.
Headquartered in Bryan, Texas, Mid South is a supplier of buns and English muffins to quick-serve restaurants in the southern US. It operates two manufacturing facilities in Texas and Mississippi. The business will continue to operate out of its existing facilities.
Dale Tremblay, CEO of CHG, said: “Steve [Warden] and the rest of the Mid South team have an impressive track record of success building the company into the market-leading bakery it is today. They have been able to scale with their customers while maintaining the highest levels of service, quality and safety. We are thrilled to welcome Mid South to the CHG family and look forward to working together to better serve our collective customers.”
Warden, Mid South’s president, said, “CHG’s culture, scale, product set and manufacturing expertise will allow Mid South to grow our reach and better serve our customers. They are well-aligned with our emphasis on customer service and product quality, and we believe we can accomplish great things together.”
CHG, a producer of branded and private-label food products, is owned by Pritzker Private Capital (PPC) along with management and other co-investors. With the acquisition, CHG now has more than 3,500 employees in 24 food manufacturing locations in the US Canada and Western Europe.
Its retail brands include Pioneer, White Wings, Sun-Bird and Cuisine Adventures.
