Brakebush Brothers, a chicken processor that serves the foodservice industry, is acquiring Lake Foods of Hartwell, Georgia.
The two parties finalized an agreement for the transaction on December 31, 2023, although the terms of that agreement has not been made public.
With the acquisition, Brakebush Brothers will gain a portioning facility for raw, sized, marinated and ready-to-cook chicken products.
According to a press release, both companies share a solid history of business success, dedicated employees with a commitment to quality, and a focus on customer service.
“We are very enthusiastic about this acquisition. The values, expertise, and capabilities of this facility put us in great position to continue to grow our existing customer base and aggressively pursue new business,” stated Gregory Huff, Brakebush President and CEO.
Brakebush Brothers, a nearly 100-year-old family-owned company, produces a wide variety of value-added chicken products for the foodservice, chain, and industrial markets. With this acquisition, Brakebush now operates five production facilities in the U.S. with headquarters in Westfield, Wisconsin, and continues to be a family-owned U.S. company.
