No material changes in the operations of the business or its management team are planned. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
The acquisition represents Creo’s sixth investment in the food area as Filet of Chicken joins Creo’s Good Harbor Fillet Co as the firm’s second East Coast protein processor.
Based just outside of Atlanta GA, Filet of Chicken operates a 100,000-square-foot manufacturing facility and serves customers nationwide in the foodservice, restaurant, and retail end markets.
