Seneca acquisition

This article was originally published in Foodnews

US canning giant, Seneca, announced on 8 November that it had signed a memorandum of understanding to buy the Washington-based fruit canner Independent Foods, which produces branded and private label pears, apples and cherries for both retail and foodservice markets. The deal is subject to the negotiation of a definitive agreement, and the terms were not disclosed. If the acquisition goes through, it will represent further consolidation in the US canned fruit market – fellow large canner, Del Monte, acquired the assets of defunct canner, Snokist, back in June ( FOODNEWS 15 June ).
