COLUMBUS, OHIO — Furthering its effort to focus on food operations, Lancaster Colony Corp., last week said it acquired the principal assets of Marshall Biscuit Company, Inc., a privately owned producer and marketer of frozen rolls and biscuits based in Saraland, Ala. "This acquisition provides us access to private label accounts, new products and additional manufacturing flexibility as we plan to continue production at the Saraland facility," said Bruce L. Rosa, president of Lancaster Colony’s Specialty Foods Group. "Marshall’s strength in the private label channel nicely complements our Sister Schubert's branded rolls." Other products in the Lancaster Colony’s Specialty Foods Group lineup include T. Marzetti’s salad dressings, veggie and fruit dips; New York Brand and Mamma Bella frozen garlic bread; Sister Schubert’s frozen rolls; and Reames frozen noodles and pastas.
