Food packaging distributor Dade Paper & Bag Co. has reached an agreement to merge with Imperial Bag & Paper Co. LLC, a distributor of disposable food service and janitorial supplies. The combined business will have more than $1 billion in total revenue.
Founded in 1939, Dade Paper manufactures foodservice disposable products and janitorial supplies. The company’s products are used by restaurants, supermarkets, cruise lines, hotels and motels, schools, convention centers, stadiums and other food-serving establishments. Dade Paper primarily services the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic markets spanning from Florida to Maryland. The newly-merged company benefits from geographic expansion and will be able to offer a broader portfolio of products, according to Dade Paper COO Frank Sansone.
