CLOSTER, N.J. — Carrington Farms, a manufacturer of organic, Non-GMO Project verified foods, has acquired tera’swhey, producer of organic whey protein in the United States. Financial terms of the transaction were not disclosed.
Founded in 2009, tera’swhey is based in Madison, Wis., and manufactures U.S.D.A. certified organic whey protein made from grass-fed dairy cows in Wisconsin. tera’swhey also offers rBGH-free whey protein and goat whey protein powder.
“tera’swhey products and approach are very closely aligned with Carrington Farms’ real food philosophy, which embodies the ideals that the brand will only make the product if they would feel confident in feeding it to their own family,” Carrington Farms said.
The acquisition of tera’swhey will further Carrington Farms’ efforts to expand in the health and wellness category within the protein powder segment, the company said, as well as increase its access to supplement purchasing customers and channels.
“At Carrington Farms, we are always aiming to provide simple, clean and real products to our consumers, and adding tera’swhey to our parent brand portfolio is a representation of our commitment as a leading natural foods company,” said David Eben, chief executive officer of Carrington Farms. “Between the quality products and the respectable reputation the tera’swhey brand has already established, we could not be more excited to use our unique, innovative and prospective approach to really disrupt the protein powder and supplement category. The seamless matchup between tera’s core values with Carrington’s is one that brings great promise and we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to propel tera’s forward.”
