Biery Cheese Co. Acquires Kickapoo Valley Cheese

Biery Cheese Co., Louisville, Ohio, acquired Kickapoo Valley Cheese (KVC), Sherry, Wis., effective Nov. 1, 2013. Both companies will operate under the Biery Cheese Co. name.

"We are excited about being able to bring on the KVC facility into the Biery Cheese family. Both organizations share in the belief of service and innovation of packaging, coupled with generations of experience," says Ben Biery, chief executive officer of Biery Cheese Co. "Continuing with our tradition of growth, this addition will help us strategically position our company to service our existing customers along with developing new customers."

"It is with confidence and a clear conscious that I transfer the ownership of Kickapoo Valley Cheese to Biery Cheese Co.,” says Jim Leytus, former owner of Kickapoo Valley Cheese. “Biery Cheese meets every criteria I have for a buyer. They are a fine company with an impressive growth curve, an excellent reputation and a desire to participate in the Wisconsin dairy industry. It was of paramount importance to me to find a willing, qualified buyer that would carry on the work and tradition of Kickapoo Valley and where possible, retain the current employees, take care of our loyal customers and give priority consideration to our suppliers and service providers. I will miss the friends, customers, suppliers, employees and the overall energy and pride we all take in the dairy industry."
