Shamrock Foods Co., Phoenix, Ariz., announced plans to acquire Food Services of America’s (FSA) Boise, Idaho, operation. The acquisition expands Shamrock Foods’ reach in the West.
“The addition of the FSA Boise operations will complement and strengthen our offerings,” says Kent McClelland, president and CEO of Shamrock Foods. “We are so excited to have the opportunity to grow our organization to meet the needs of our customers and communities we serve throughout the West.”
FSA’s dedication to innovation, agility and delivering high levels of service align with Shamrock Foods’ promise to going beyond delivery.
Shamrock Foods offers a comprehensive portfolio of products, including national and exclusive brands, with an extensive product line featuring fresh custom-cut meat, seafood, produce and dairy, as well as dry and frozen groceries, beverages, equipment and supplies. Shamrock Foods services a variety of locations throughout the western United States, including independent restaurants, national accounts, healthcare and more.
This acquisition opportunity was created as a result of the FTC’s review of the acquisition by US Foods, Rosemont, Ill., where the FTC is requiring US Foods to divest certain portions of the FSA business.
This announcement comes on the heels of Harbor Wholesale Foods, Lacey, Wash., acquiring a significant portion of FSA’s Seattle, Wash., business.
