MEXICO, Guanajuato. Mexican poultry group Industrias Bachoco has agreed to acquire Alabama-based Albertville Quality Foods, a manufacturer of consumer meat products including chicken strips and breakfast sausage. This was reported by FoodBev Media.
Bachoco CEO Rodolfo Ramos said: “With this acquisition, we will continue the growing of our US operation, mainly with further processed products. We are confident that we will be able to quickly integrate this company into our current operations and to capitalise the opportunities and synergies we have identified.”
Mexico’s leading poultry processor, Bachoco will also sense opportunity in Brazil’s carne fraca scandal, with confidence in exports of meat from Brazil – a major poultry exporter – seriously dented by malpractice in the supply chain.
