California company acquiring Richard's
CHURCH POINT - Richard's Cajun Foods will be acquired by Altamont Capital Partners, a San Francisco area private investment firm.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed, The Advocate reports.
The company had been owned by Atlantic Premium Brands.
Richard's which has operated since 1981, produces smoked sausage, frozen Cajun dishes and other traditional Cajun products. The food line is sold in Louisiana, Texas and other Southeastern states.
Atlantic Premium bought Richard's in 1996.
Altamont announced the Richard's deal Monday, and another to acquire Blue Ribbon, a Texas-based maker of bacon and sausage.
