Warren, Michigan-based Lipari Foods has finalized an agreement to acquire Minnesota-based Market Distributing, a distributor of quality, innovative foods. This opportunity will expand Lipari’s distribution footprint into the adjacent markets of Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and the Dakotas.

Located in Burnsville, Minnesota, the Market Distributing team has been servicing retailers in the Upper Midwest for 25 years. Market Distributing currently supplies 571 retailers in five states, with approximately 73 employees. 

Market Distributing partners with top brands such as Dot’s Pretzels, GT’S Kombucha, Nueske’s Meats and Sweet Martha’s.

“We look forward to the opportunity to provide retail customers in the Upper Midwest with quality products and exceptional customer service. Market Distributing is a trusted leader in their market and adding their expertise to all that Lipari provides means greater opportunities for their customer base,” said Thom Lipari, CEO of Lipari Foods.

“We are pleased that Lipari is committed to build upon the principals that have made Market Distributing what it is today, and believe the resulting company will be positive for our employees and valued customers,” said Mike Reineck, general manager of Market Distributing.

Lipari Foods was founded in 1963 by Jim Lipari, who began his career by delivering unique products from the back of his Buick station wagon. It is an independent distributor delivering a wide range of quality bakery, dairy, deli, packaging, seafood, meat, grocery, foodservice, confectionery and convenience food and beverage products to more than 8,500 customers across 25 states.
