Sandridge Food Corp., Medina, Ohio, acquired a majority interest in RMH Foods, LLC, a Morton, Ill.-based producer of fully cooked refrigerated and frozen entrées for retail and foodservice, as well as specialized portion-control products utilizing Sous Vide, or cook-in-bag technology.
"We are truly excited to begin our relationship with RMH Foods. We both are third-generation family businesses, our core values are aligned and both families have the commitment to create clean label, great tasting food," says Mark Sandridge, chief executive officer of Sandridge Food.
RMH Foods' Sous Vide technology will help to expand Sandridge's offerings by providing the capability to enter a new business segment that will now include "center-of-the-plate" entrées. This collaboration will also strengthen Sandridge's ability to create and distribute a wider variety of products that allow for reduced sodium and no preservatives.
Under this agreement, RMH Foods will become a Sandridge Family Co., a part of Sandridge Food Corp. Jon Rocke will remain on board as the RMH Foods president.
