MARION, N.Y. — Seneca Foods Corp. has completed its acquisition of Sunnyside, Wash.-based Independent Foods, L.L.C., a privately-held processor of canned pears, apples and cherries.

The acquisition was first announced in November, and terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

“We believe these operations are a complementary fit with our existing canned fruit business,” said Kraig Kayser, president and chief executive officer for Seneca Foods. “We are very excited about this acquisition and the addition of the Sunnyside, Wash., facility to our production facilities and the extension of our product offerings it brings to our company.”
