“I would like to welcome the entire Bassian Farms organization, including founders Dan and Lee Bassian, into our growing family of companies,” says Christopher Pappas, chairman and CEO of The Chefs’ Warehouse. “We believe that this acquisition further enhances our ability to deliver quality protein products while optimizing our existing production and distribution capacity in Northern California.”
