Taylor Farms has announced the acquisition of Earthbound Farm from Danone, SA, effective today. "We are grateful for Danone’s stewardship of Earthbound Farm during the past two years and for the opportunity to return ownership of this organic fresh produce leader to local roots and family ownership."
Earthbound Farm will join the Taylor Farms Retail Group and help lead growth in the dynamic organic fresh produce category. The company will build on Earthbound Farm’s tradition of organic authenticity, new variety development and quality focus with expanded regional organic growing and processing capability to better serve Earthbound Farm’s customers and consumers across North America.
As a family-owned company located in the Salinas Valley, Taylor Farms were motivated by the thought of bringing the heritage of another company back to the local community. In addition, this acquisition expands upon Taylor Farms’ existing organic offerings and brings additional products to customers and consumers across North America.
Earthbound Farm branded products will remain in the marketplace, with Taylor Farms organic products transitioning to the Earthbound Farm brand over time.
