Stonewall Kitchen has agreed a deal to acquire Tillen Farms’ range of cocktail garnishes for an undisclosed sum.
The deal is expected to be completed in January 2018, after which Stonewall will own Tillen Farms products such as Bada Bing and Maraschino cherries as well as the brand’s range of pickled vegetables.
John Stiker, chief executive officer of Stonewall Kitchen said: “We have long admired the premium quality and variety of Tillen Farms’ delicious products, from their pickled asparagus spears and dilly beans to their signature Bada Bing cherries.
“The product line is completely complementary to the speciality food categories we currently offer, and provides us with an immediate leadership presence in the cocktail garnish category.”
Tim Metzger, the founder and owner of Tillen Farms added: “After growing the Tillen Farms brand over the last 13 years, I couldn’t imagine a more perfect partner than Stonewall Kitchen to help take the brand to the next level.
“We share similar values of providing superior product quality, clean ingredient labels, and predominantly US-based sourcing and manufacturing. I look forward to working with John and the team to continue to grow both Tillen Farms and Stonewall Kitchen in the coming years.”
