US Foods To Acquire Italian Specialty Distributor

US Foods has agreed to acquire Jeraci Foods, an Italian specialty distributor based in Elmsford, New York.

Family owned since 1972, Jeraci Foods offers a complete line of authentic Italian and other imported and domestic food products to customers throughout the metro New York area. With more than $26 million in sales annually, US Foods says Jeraci will enhance US Foods’ penetration in the Italian independent restaurant and pizzeria segment.

The Jeraci Foods location will remain open through the end of the year to ensure a smooth transition, after which the business will shift to the US Foods location in Perth Amboy, New Jersey.

“As a family owned business Jeraci Foods has built a strong reputation for great customer service and high-quality food,” said Chuck Gannon, area president for US Foods.
