Colorado Premium Foods, Greeley, Colo., acquired the assets of National Deli, LLC, a Miami, Fla.-based branded deli meat manufacturer.
Originally founded in 1982 as the non-kosher division of Hebrew National, National Deli has built a reputation for high-quality raw and cooked meats, including corned beef, roast beef, pastrami, prime rib and hot dogs.
“National Deli’s product line is a natural extension of our core business,” says Kevin LaFleur, president of Colorado Premium. “The company is a recognized brand, especially along the eastern seaboard of the United States, serving a wide range of restaurants, traditional delis, pubs, casinos and country clubs. National Deli has an immensely talented management team and staff. They have a commitment to quality assurance and a standard of excellence that matches our own. I’m especially pleased to say that the management team and National Deli’s employees will stay in place and will continue to operate from the company’s operations and distribution center in Miami.”
“The entire National Deli management team is excited about the synergies and expertise that Colorado Premium brings to the business, as we continue our mission of bringing the finest quality raw and cooked deli meats to our customers. Our focus will be to continue and improve upon the level of product quality, product choice and customer service that our customers have come to know and trust,” says Jehan Saulnier, president and CEO of National Deli.
This is Colorado Premium’s second acquisition in the past two years, having acquired Buedel Fine Meats & Provisions and Vlcek Fine Meats, Inc., both based in Bridgeview, Ill.
