NEW YORK — Mistral Equity Partners, a private equity firm, has acquired Country Pure Foods L.L.C., a juice manufacturer. Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
Country Pure sells more than 350 unique products, across 24 packaging types and 38 flavors. The company’s product line is supported by three manufacturing facilities located in Ohio, Florida and Connecticut.
“Country Pure’s broad product and packaging offering, along with its ability to service customers across the food service, retail and co-pack channels has positioned the company as an industry leader,” said Andrew Heyer, managing partner of Mistral Equity Partners. “Country Pure is poised to take advantage of a number of favorable trends in its core end markets, including growth in spending on health care and student meal programs, the continued outsourcing of certain product categories by major juice marketers, and expanding private label juice programs.”
