GS Foods Group Inc., a specialized food distributor owned by affiliates of Highview Capital LLC and A&M Capital Partners, announced its acquisition of C&C Produce, a specialty distributor of produce products based in Kansas City, MO. C&C’s owners will continue to lead operations from its current facilities in partnership with GS Foods’ senior leadership team.
Established in 1992, C&C operates the largest produce warehouse in the Midwest – serving more than 4,000 customer locations across six states with superior products. Going forward, C&C’s owners will collaborate closely with the GS Foods’ team as the two companies ensure a seamless transition and continued operational excellence.
With more than 50 years of industry experience, GS Foods encompasses a family of specialized foodservice companies. GS Foods’ investment in C&C is expected to strengthen C&C’s existing operations while enhancing the value to GS Foods’ customers in education, foodservice and retail.
GS Foods said it is focused on continuing to grow its business and finding ways to better serve its 8,000 customers throughout the United States. The acquisition of C&C follows other recent acquisitions including Classic Delight, School Lunch Products, Inc., Fresno Produce and Hayes Distributing, as well as the opening of new distribution centers in Pennsylvania, Texas, Colorado and Oregon.
