AgCertain Industries Acquires Maytag Dairy Farms

AgCertain Maytag

Ames, Iowa-based AgCertain Industries Inc. has acquired Newton, Iowa-based Maytag Dairy Farms, manufacturer and marketer of Maytag Blue Cheese as well as other specialty artisanal food and beverage products.

Midwest Growth Partners, a shareholder of AgCertain Industries and the previous owner of Maytag Dairy Farms, has expanded its investment in AgCertain Industries by facilitating the acquisition.

“The combination of these two companies supports continuing success and spurs greater potential for growth across AgCertain’s growing set of brands, products and services,” said John Mickelson, managing partner of Midwest Growth Partners.

AgCertain Industries and Maytag Dairy Farms operate with rigorous food safety measures and certifications and the strength of both organizations, working together, is clear.

“In my experience, I have developed a deep appreciation for what makes Maytag Blue Cheese so special. Maytag’s success is rooted in its commitment to quality, and I believe the company has tremendous opportunity to grow and provide a broader range of products and services to our customers,” said Daniel Oh, AgCertain Industries’ CEO.

Founded in 1941, Maytag Dairy Farms provides small batch, crafted cheese and other specialty products to the business and consumer marketplace. With its acquisition by AgCertain, Maytag will become a part of the larger organization in order to accelerate modernizing and growing its business. Maytag has been expanding its product line-up to include new cheeses, artisanal honey products and a honey-based wine product. AgCertain provides organic, non-GMO and specialty oils as well as USP grade glycerin.

“Today’s consumer cares more about where their food comes from,” Oh said. “The ability to control the quality of ingredients in our products and produce them in a highly certified and traceable way provides the certainty which customers value. By combining our two Iowa-based companies, we are able to create deeper branding opportunities and expanded product sales opportunities for both organizations.”
