Cains Foods sold to TreeHouse Foods

Steve breakdown: 100 years of Condiments. That’s what we’re talking about here. And we suspect, if TreeHouse wants to keep their loyal customers, they might want to develop a campaign to thank them.

OAK BROOK, IL: TreeHouse Foods, Inc. has entered an agreement to acquire Cains Foods, L.P. for $35 million. Cains Foods is a manufacturer of mayonnaise, dressings and sauces that includes private label brands as well as the Cains, Naturally Delicious and Olde Cape Cod brands.

Reed, chairman, president and chief executive officer. “Cains will be a great fit within the TreeHouse family, rounding out our industry-leading assortment of private label pourable and spoonable dressings.”

Cains Foods generates about $80 million in annual revenue, and its products go to both retail and food service outlets. The transaction is expected to close within a month and is expected to boost TreeHouse’s 2014 earnings by 5c a share.
