FreshEdge, a family of best-in-class fresh food distribution companies backed by Wind Point Partners, acquired Sirna & Sons Produce, a fourth-generation, family-run, wholesale food distributor and its respective value-added operation, Christine’s Cuts, a Kosher and Primus GFS certified in-house produce processing facility. 

Since 1939, Sirna & Sons Produce has continually provided premium produce and superior customer service to restaurants, hotels, country clubs, schools, and institutions throughout Ohio, central Pennsylvania, and northern West Virginia. Sirna & Sons Produce operates out of two state-of-the-art facilities, one in Ravenna, Ohio, and a second in Norwalk, Ohio. Together these facilities boast over 140,000 square feet of warehouse space, as well as solar panels and other sustainable materials. 

“We gladly welcome Tom, Vince, Serena and their outstanding team to FreshEdge,” said Steve Grinstead, CEO of FreshEdge. “With a commitment to customer service at its core, Sirna & Sons Produce will be a great addition to our growing family of customer-obsessed companies.” 

FreshEdge now operates more than 1.1 million square feet of warehouse space across 28 facilities with a fleet of 1,027 trucks. 

“We are excited for this new opportunity,” said Tom Sirna, president of Sirna & Sons Produce. “We remain committed to offering the same level of excellent customer service and quality our customers have come to expect from Sirna & Sons. The Sirna family will remain involved in the day-to-day operations of the company to ensure the legacy built by our father will continue for years to come.”
