Greencore has acquired HC Schau & Son, a fresh food manufacturer with facilities in Chicago, Illinois and Jacksonville, Florida (US).
Schau is a producer of fresh sandwiches and sushi including fresh entrees and other ready to eat items, sold through both the convenience store and grocery retail channels.
It has an established modern facility in Chicago and a new high quality start-up facility in Jacksonville. For the year ended December 2011, it had revenues of $32m (£20.5m).
Greencore has put in place a multi-year partnership with the new customer to supply its stores with approximately $50m of Food to Go products on the east coast and in the mid-west from four of Greencore’s facilities.
