General Mills Inc. (NYSEL GIS) has purchased meat snacks producer Epic Provisions, in a move that will expand the Annie’s division.

Epic, founded in 2013 and based in Austin, Texas, makes protein bars and other snacks with meat ingredients that come in flavors such as Bison Bacon Cranberry, Beef Habanero Cherry, Pulled Pork Pineapple and Chicken Sesame Barbecue. The target will become part of organic food maker Annie’s, which General Mills acquired in 2014.
