USA: Kettle Cuisine merges with Del Monaco Foods
Refrigerated and frozen soup producer Kettle Cuisine has announced that it has acquired the privately-held California-based custom food manufacturing firm Del Monaco Foods, which makes products for private label soups and sauces and other specialty items.
Kettle Cuisine said that this was the firm’s second deal since being acquired by Kainos Capital in August 2015. The new transaction is expected to create “the only true coast to coast fresh soup producer” and to open the door for the companies to expand and grow nationwide.
“We're excited to merge Del Monaco Foods with Kettle Cuisine and offer a truly national fresh soup program”, said Liam McClennon, CEO of Kettle Cuisine. “Our commitment to shared values of service, food safety, quality and innovation align us for further growth and continued success in providing our customers with best in class products".
