Arlington Heights, Il-based Federated Group, has announced that as of 1 September, Federated Foodservice will once again operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of the company. The national foodservice sales and marketing group, which formed a strategic alliance with All Kitchens of America in 1997, is returning to its parent group, it said, in order to "offer members and suppliers the advantages of in-depth services, programmes and state-of-the- art management capabilities".
