Harvest Hill Beverage Co. has acquired the beverage manufacturing assets of Faribault Foods Inc. for an undisclosed amount.
Based in Stamford, Harvest Hill was formed in June 2014 by Brynwood Partners VII LP of Greenwich to acquire the Juicy Juice brand from Nestlé USA Inc.
Minneapolis-based Faribault’s beverage assets include a manufacturing plant in Elk River, Minn., which serves as the leading private label supplier and contract manufacturer of pouch products to leading beverage brands. Its customer base includes Sunny Delight, Juicy Juice and Back to Nature.
The acquisition will increase Harvest Hill’s manufacturing flexibility by adding geographic diversity to its production capacity, said Henk Hartong, chairman and CEO of Brynwood Partners and chairman of Harvest Hill.
