Allens, Siloam Springs, Ark., announced a name change to reflect its new ownership and management. Effective immediately, Allens will be called Sager Creek Vegetable Co. All product brands will remain the same.
"Sager Creek is a beautiful resource that runs through our hometown of Siloam Springs, Ark.," says Chris Kiser, chief executive officer. "Our company was founded in this region in 1926, and this place has nurtured and helped sustain our business. Our new name reflects our history and better positions us to strengthen our brands in the marketplace."
Sager Creek Acquisitions Corp. acquired the 87-year-old vegetable processor in February. Kiser was named CEO in March. Allens employs more than 1,000 people in Arkansas, Wisconsin and North Carolina.
