Family-owned Foster Farms recently announced the acquisition of Fernando’s Mexican Foods from ConAgra Foods.

“We are very pleased with this acquisition,” says Ron Foster, Foster Farms’ president and CEO.

“We look forward to continuing to provide customers with the quality products they depend on while expanding our current business.”

One of the original foodservice, frozen Mexican brands, Fernando’s has a full line of authentic Mexican entrées and appetizers ready to heat and serve. Foster Farms will continue to offer the popular el eXtremo brand for school foodservice.

Foster Farms has been family owned and operated since 1939, and is the leading supplier of corn dog, Mexican convenience foods, and prepared chicken and turkey products to the U.S. foodservice market.
