US Foods, Rosemont, Ill., agreed to acquire Freshway Foods, a fresh fruit and vegetable processor, re-packer and distributor based in Sydney, Ohio.
Established in 1988, Freshway Foods is owned by brothers Phil and Frank Gilardi, and provides value-added fresh cut produce, including the cutting, cleaning, chopping and packaging of raw produce, throughout the eastern half of the United States.
“We are very excited about this new partnership with US Foods,” says Phil and Frank. “Since we started this business, our success has been built upon our commitment to our associates and our customers, and we are looking forward to the next chapter for Freshway Foods as part of a well-established and reputable company like US Foods.”
US Foods will retain the Freshway Foods’ Sydney location.
The transaction is expected to close June 10.
