COLUMBIA, S.C. — McCall Foods, a processor of canned and frozen vegetables, has acquired several aspects of Bruce Foods’ canned vegetables business. The acquisition includes the Bruce’s brand and two existing Bruce Foods’ plants. The products currently manufactured by Bruce Foods, and included in the acquisition, are yams, white potatoes and Southern vegetables, such as okra, squash, greens and carrots.  Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

“The acquisition of the Bruce’s brand is an exciting addition to our growing company,” said Marion Swink, co-owner of McCall Farms. “Bruce Foods is a family-owned company that has shared our similar values, and their Southern style vegetables are the perfect addition to the McCall Farms’ product line.”

In conjunction with the acquisition, McCall Farms said it will invest $19.3 million to add a canning line at the company’s Florence County, S.C., plant.
