B&G Foods Inc. announced it has entered into an agreement to sell the Back to Nature brand to Barilla America. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“Our decision to sell Back to Nature is part of a broader effort at B&G Foods to focus our portfolio on businesses that are core to our long-term strategy as we transition to a business unit structure,” Casey Keller, president and chief executive officer of B&G Foods, said in the announcement. “The divestiture will also allow us to reduce long-term debt, while providing Barilla America with a great brand.”
