US Foods has agreed to acquire SRA Foods, a Birmingham, AL based meat processor and distributor with annual sales of approximately $80 million.
Family owned since 1940, SRA started out as a butcher shop in Birmingham. SRA Foods now offers a product line of more than 1,000 items. With a large population of BBQ and meat-centric restaurants throughout the South, the acquisition will help strengthen US Foods’ center-of-the-plate offerings to its customers throughout the region.
“The Anselmo family has built a tremendous reputation for providing the highest quality meats to more than 1,000 customers throughout the Birmingham area,” said David Norton, president, US Foods’ Stock Yards. “We are excited to be able to expand our offering throughout the South region and beyond by bringing SRA Foods into the US Foods family.”
"We are proud to be joining US Foods, a company that shares our vision for providing our valued customers with the highest levels of quality and service,” said Anthony Anselmo, president, SRA Foods. “We’re pleased US Foods will continue to invest in our business and support our employees and the community of Birmingham."
SRA Foods operates out of a nearly 70,000 sft. facility and runs a fleet of almost 20 trucks. US Foods will continue to operate the SRA Foods facility in Birmingham and expects to welcome its more than 100 employees to the company. The location will become part of US Foods’ Stock Yards organization, the company said, which provides high-quality meat and seafood, custom cut and packaged for customers’ specifications.
The acquisition of SRA Foods marks US Foods’ sixth within the past year. The company is headquartered in Rosemont, IL and generates approximately $23 billion in annual revenue. Discover more at www.usfoods.com.
