EFFINGHAM, S.C. — McCall Farms announced in September they are acquiring the brands of Sager Creek Vegetable Company, a division of San Francisco-based Del Monte Foods, Inc.
The acquired retail and food service brands have national and regional distribution and include well-known names like Allens, Veg-all, Popeye, Princella, Freshlike and Trappey’s.
Woody Swink, co-president at McCall Farms, said the Sage Creek Vegetable brands “fit perfectly with our heritage of making authentic, southern-style vegetables that can be served as a meal, side-dish or, used as a key cooking ingredient.”
“The opportunity we have to expand the branded products we offer is made possible thanks to our employees,” Swink said. “They are truly dedicated and passionate about McCall Farms being known as the preferred supplier for the highest quality vegetables available in retail and food service.”
McCall Farms is one of America’s leading producers of farm-fresh canned vegetables and fruits. Established in 1838, McCall Farms employs over 1,000 people in its 1 million-square-foot manufacturing facility and corporate offices in Effingham. The family-owned-and-operated company produces a wide variety of high-quality, Southern-style products under four nationally distributed brands in retail and food service: Glory Foods, Margaret Holmes, Peanut Patch and Bruce’s Yams.
