Patriot Pickle, a Swander Pace Capital portfolio company, has acquired the pickle assets of Farm Ridge Foods.
Farm Ridge Foods offers a diverse range of olives, pickles, and salads made from natural ingredients. Patriot Pickle is a pickle manufacturer that has manufactured and shipped fresh pickles across the United States to thousands of restaurants, delis, supermarkets, and distributors. Swander Pace Capital is a private equity firm that invests in businesses across three domains of consumer lifestyles: Food + Beverage, Body + Wellness, and Home + Family.
“This is an exciting time to be a leader in fresh pickle manufacturing,” said CEO of Patriot Pickle, Bill McEntee. “The acquisition of Farm Ridge Foods is a key step towards rounding out and building up our internal retail sales capabilities. Fresh, refrigerated pickles are a key growth area for our retail and food service partners, and we are excited to be able to better serve them more directly with this acquisition.”
