Ahold Delhaize Sells Two Meat Facilities To Cargill

As it focuses investments in omnichannel businesses, Ahold Delhaize USA has announced that its Infinity Meat Solutions subsidiaries have sold two processing facilities – North Kingstown, Rhode Island, and Camp Hill, Pennsylvania – to Cargill.

“As our brands focus on being the leading omnichannel grocery retailers in our markets, we have made the decision to sell these facilities so that we can continue to be intentional about our investments in the U.S. as we drive growth,” said CEO JJ Fleeman of Ahold Delhaize USA. 

“By aligning these facilities with a company that specializes in meat production, we can continue to provide quality products to our brands’ customers and increase our focus on being leading omnichannel retailers.”   

Cargill employees already staff both facilities, stemming from a partnership with Ahold Delhaize USA to produce packaged ground beef and pork, muscle cuts and value-added products for the retailer’s U.S. grocery store brands. 

Cargill will continue to serve Ahold Delhaize USA brands in the Northeast, while expanding its case-ready production and distribution capabilities from the two plants to additional retailers.

“With this investment, we look forward to our continued partnership with Ahold Delhaize USA companies while bringing additional high-quality case-ready products to new retail customers,” said Hans Kabat, president of Cargill’s North American Protein business. 

“By bringing more of our case-ready and value-added protein products to retailers, their employees can spend less time on back-room prep work and more time helping their customers at the meat counter.”
