Indianapolis-based IF&P Foods says it has acquired Get Fresh Produce, a distributor of fresh produce, fresh-cut items and specialty products based in the Chicago area. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Per the agreement, Get Fresh will work alongside Indianapolis Fruit, Piazza Produce and Specialty Foods and Papania Produce to increase quality and customer satisfaction.
Gino Alimondi will continue to lead Get Fresh as president, and the company’s operations will continue to run from its facility in Illinois, as well as from its other distribution centers. Steve Grinstead will lead the newly partnered companies as chief executive officer with Greg Corsaro as president and chief operating officer.
IF&P says the deal positions the combined group of companies as one of the largest independent produce and specialty food distributors in its market.
