Utz Brands To Acquire California Maker Of Tortilla Chips

November 2, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The Pennsylvania-based manufacturer of salty snacks announced that its subsidiaries will acquire RW Garcia Holdings, LLC (Scott's Valley, Calif.). Founded in 1982, RW Garcia is a family-owned and operated artisan maker of organic tortilla chips, crackers, and corn chips. All of its products are non-GMO verified, certified gluten-free, low sodium, kosher, and free of artificial additives or preservatives. RW Garcia has strong capabilities in better-for-you tortilla chips, crackers, and corn chips. The $56 million deal will enable strong supply chain synergies, enhance Utz’s ability to expand distribution of existing brands, and supplement the better-for-you product portfolio, the company said. Utz says RW Garcia is complementary to Utz's June 2021 acquisition of Michigan-based Festida Foods.
