Tony’s Fine Foods, West Sacramento, Calif., acquired substantially all of the assets of Ideal Food Products, Inc., a Portland, Ore.-based perishable foods distributor. Tony’s will begin operations in the Pacific Northwest from Ideal’s distribution facility located in Ridgefield, Wash.

“This acquisition strengthens and solidifies Tony’s growing position in the Pacific Northwest, and represents another step in Tony’s continuing strategy of providing efficient service-oriented perishable food distribution throughout the Western United States,” says Karl Berger, chief executive officer of Tony’s. “It will further enhance Tony’s ability to meet growing consumer demand for specialty and other food products in the Pacific Northwest. We believe vendors and customers will benefit from Tony’s greater product reach, comprehensive and consolidated distribution and enhanced logistics and storage operations, which ensure products are delivered fresh, multiple times per week.”
