US Foods announced that it hasagreed to acquire SRA Foods, a meat processor and distributor in Birmingham, Alabama, with annual sales of approximately $80 mill.
Family owned since 1940, SRA started out as a butcher shop in Birmingham. Today, SRA Foods occupies a nearly 70,000 square foot facility, runs a fleet of nearly 20 trucks and features a product line of more than 1,000 distinct items. With a large population of BBQ and meat-centric restaurants throughout the South, this acquisition will help strengthen US Foods’ center-of-the-plate offerings to its customers throughout the region.

US Foods will continue to operate the SRA Foods facility in Birmingham, and expects to welcome its more than 100 employees to the company. The location will become part of the company’s Stock Yards organization,which provides high-quality meat and seafood, custom cutand packaged for customers’specifications. The transaction is expected to close in late March. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
