Hormel Purchase



Hormel Foods in Austin has acquired a branded food service business.

Hormel announced they have acquired Fontanini Italian Meats and Sausages from Capitol Wholesale Meats, Inc. Fontanini is based in Chicago and specializes in authentic Italian meats and sausages, as well as a variety of other premium meat products including pizza toppings and meatballs.

Hormel says this is a strategic acquisition for its high-growth food service division. The Fontanini brand is highly regarded, and the addition of these products to the Hormel portfolio will allow it to accelerate its growth for both Hormel Foods food service and for Fontanini through expanded distribution and new customers.
