All American Foods, Inc. Acquires Waseca Foods, LLC

In a move to strengthen its position as a leading custom and specialty processor of dry food and nutritional products, All American Foods, Inc. has completed its acquisition of the operation and facility of Waseca Foods, LLC, located in Waseca, Minn.

“Both companies have enjoyed growth and built reputations for quality that have enabled us to serve nutritional markets all over the U.S. and internationally,” said Jeff A. Thom, chief executive officer of All American Foods, Inc.  “With this acquisition, we increase our capacity and expertise, enabling us to add new products and services for our growing worldwide customer base.”

All American Foods, founded in 1987, provides professional food processing and packaging services for food service and retail food manufacturers, at its three manufacturing facilities in Mankato, Minn.  The company is known for its trademarked “Pro Mix®” line of products, including over 100 dairy and soy based ingredients, which can be used in a variety of finished products and are marketed all over the world.  Its corporate headquarters will remain in Mankato.

The Waseca operation was also a supplier to the food manufacturing industry.  Together this combination enhances All American Foods’ ability to provide a wide variety of ingredient processing and industrial packaging services to food manufacturers.

“Our continued growth comes from our two greatest assets, our customers and employees.  These assets, along with our modern and diverse facilities, allow us to ensure our commitment of ‘Blending Integrity and Experience for Quality ProductsTM.’  This acquisition was consistent with that commitment,” said Thom. Steve Johnson, president of Waseca Foods, will join the All American Foods board of directors and will serve in a consulting capacity.

All American Foods is a privately held company specializing in processing and packaging of dry food and nutritional ingredients for food service and retail food manufacturers. With four manufacturing facilities, the company has a processing capacity of more than 175 million pounds annually.
