Home Market Foods, headquartered in Norwood, Massachusetts, has acquired Kelly Corned Beef Co., which is known in the marketplace as as Kelly Eisenberg, in Chicago.
More than 50 years ago, Home Market Foods began as a purveyor of fresh meats and is producer of fully cooked meat-based prepared foods for both retail and foodservice customers. Its portfolio includes Bahama Mama Brands.
Founded in 1929, Kelly Eisenberg has produced and distributed the Eisenberg brand of gourmet frankfurters and sausages and the Kelly brand of corned beef.
“Two brothers, Cliff and Howard Eisenberg, have built their business over the years by developing the highest quality products providing excellent customer service and building a terrific team,” said Douglas Atamian, CEO of Home Market Foods. “We will continue to honor this legacy and provide an even broader array of product offerings and innovation to their fine customers.

This acquisition provides Home Market Foods with an excellent combination of capabilities and values to form an even stronger and more dynamic product platform for us to offer our customers and consumers.”
