Ziyad Brothers, an omnichannel provider of branded Middle Eastern and Mediterranean foods and an affiliate of Peak Rock Capital, has bought Vintage Food Corp., a distributor of branded Turkish, Middle Eastern and Eastern European food and beverage products.
Headquartered in Kearny, N.J., Vintage supplies over 2,000 products to thousands of customers across the U.S. including local grocers, supermarkets and national accounts. The deal looks to bring together two companies with complementary brand portfolios and geographic footprints, helping the combined company to offer customers an expanded product portfolio. Levent Demirgil, Vintage president, will join the Ziyad team and continue to serve as the business leader for Vintage.
“With an expanded brand portfolio and geographic reach, we are excited to bring innovative, new flavors and products to our valued customers,” comments Nassem Ziyad, executive chairman of Ziyad. “As always, we are committed to our stakeholders’ success, and we are confident that this partnership will enable our customers and suppliers to grow rapidly, as we continue our strong trajectory.”
