Grass Run Farms Acquired by Jack Link’s Protein Snacks
March 11, 2016
Jack Link’s Protein Snacks announced it has acquired the meat snack division of Grass Run Farms, – a collective of American family farms that produce 100% grass-fed beef and beef snacks. Terms of the deal, which includes trademark and distribution rights, were not disclosed.
Grass Run Farms’ farmers and ranchers raise beef cattle using sustainable, responsible methods, without the use of antibiotics or added hormones. The company’s product line includes beef jerky beef sticks, and beef bites, all in three flavors, and summer sausage.
“We know many consumers are seeking out grass-fed, locally and responsibly raised beef and we’re excited to extend that offering underneath the Jack Link’s Protein Snacks portfolio,” Link said. “Grass Run Farms has built a strong foundation of trust with its consumers and they can rest assured there will be no changes in how Grass Run Farms beef products are raised and produced.”
Headquartered in Minong, Wisconsin, Jack Link’s is the number one meat snack producer in the world with eleven manufacturing and distribution facilities across four countries, and sales in more than 40 countries. The company’s product line includes Jack Link’s, Lorissa’s Kitchen, MATADOR Jerky, SQUATCH Snack Sticks, World Kitchens Jerky, Pepperami, and Bifi.
