By acquiring Emge Foods, Peer Foods Group will continue to build its portfolio of established brands in order to offer greater choice while improving efficiency. Peer Foods Group plans to fully support and grow the Emge brand of products. Through this shared product line, customers can now purchase Emge, Mariah, and Peer Foods labels on one order and delivery.
This latest acquisition also provides Peer Foods Group and Mariah Foods Inc a significantly increased manufacturing capacity in Indiana.
Founded in Chicago IL in 1867, Peer Foods was one of the first meat companies in America to use refrigeration to sell fresh-cut meat year-round. In 1922, it opened a meat processing plant that would provide the foundation for the companyís entry into foodservice. In 1996, Peer Foods acquired Mariah Foods.
