Capitol City Produce Company LLC and Table Fresh Foods, LLC announced their partnership, with Capitol City Produce acquiring Table Fresh Foods so Table Fresh can focus on its commissary business. The distribution operations deal will go into effect on December 30, 2017, including 5 vehicles in the deal.
Capital City Produce recently expanded their Baton Rouge, LA facilities from 39,000 to 90,000 square feet. They also applied new enterprise-wide software technology that allows customers to conduct business more conveniently, along with recently earning a Safe Quality Food (SQF) Level 3 food safety certification. This certification means they are the only produce distributor in a four-state area to service customers at such a high standard for food safety.
Capitol City Produce has become one of the largest and most respected providers of produce in the Gulf Coast region.
“Table Fresh has a tremendous customer base that they have nurtured carefully, and we want to continue that. We see tremendous opportunity to build upon those relationships with our expanded line of produce, specialty produce, local produce, local dairy, and a new line of premium chocolates and bakery products. With our recent 51,000 square foot expansion, we have the capacity to service our new family of customers easily and efficiently. It’s the right time and right opportunity to truly be helpful to our customers—something we are really thrilled about,” said Darin Arceneaux, COO of Capitol City Produce.
Table Fresh offers Capitol City Produce items they didn’t have
Table Fresh, a subsidiary of Associated Grocers, makes prepared foods such as entrees and side dishes that are distributed to grocery stores, restaurants and delis.
Emile Breaux, AG president and chief operating officer, said that the partnership lets Table Fresh focus on supermarket clients.
Arceneaux said that the acquisition deal only covers Table Fresh’s customers and not the AG stores that use the products. Table Fresh also offers items that Capitol City Produce didn’t have, like a line of 30 different cheese products, showing how mutually beneficial their partnership is.
