Fresh From Texas, a San Antonio-based business, has acquired the manufacturing plant of CeCe’s Veggie Co., located in Austin, Texas.
The purchase of the manufacturing facility increases Fresh From Texas’ production capacity enabling continued expansion into new avenues for growth in the refrigerated, premium product lines of high-quality, hand-crafted plant-based meal solutions. As part of the agreement, Fresh From Texas will continue to produce the CeCe’s varieties of spiralized vegetables in the Austin facility.
The integration will take place over the next month and customers and suppliers will continue to operate as usual with no service or supply disruptions. All ninety Austin employees will be retained with a plan in place to bring more jobs to the Austin facility with an expanded production schedule.
“Fresh From Texas has seen significant growth with increased product innovation activity and the growing consumer interest in healthful eating. The Austin facility is a state-of-the-art operation that complements our San Antonio campus,” commented Judy Clark, CEO of Fresh From Texas. “We look forward to working with the team in Austin and increasing the production within the facility.”
Mason Arnold, Founder of CeCe’s Veggie Co. says: “The sale of our manufacturing assets will allow us to incorporate our noodle expertise into more diverse operations and expand our capabilities under the CeCe’s brand. We look forward to partnering with Fresh Texas on future innovation and the continued manufacturing of high-quality organic CeCe’s product line.”
Over the past twenty years, Fresh From Texas’ hallmark has been the ability to grow through new-to-market products. With recently launched zucchini noodle salads and vegetarian meal solutions, Fresh From Texas continues to expand and meet the needs of the evolving consumer.
