Taylor Farms Acquires Earthbound Farm

Taylor Farms Acquires Earthbound Farm



SALINAS, CA - Nearly a year after news broke that Earthbound Farm might find a new home, Taylor Farms has announced that it has grown its portfolio with the acquisition of the organic grower from Danone.

“We are grateful for Danone’s stewardship of Earthbound Farm during the past two years and for the opportunity to return ownership of this organic fresh produce leader to local roots and family ownership,” Taylor Farms said in a statement.

Earthbound was acquired by Danone along with its previous parent company WhiteWave Foods in July of 2016. Having grown organics for more than 30 years, the company touts strong roots in stewardship and a history as part of a “packaged salad revolution.”

 Taylor Farms said it will build on Earthbound Farm’s tradition of organic authenticity, new variety development, and quality focus

Now, Earthbound Farm will join the Taylor Farms Retail Group, which its new parent said will help lead growth in the dynamic organic fresh produce category.

Through this acquisition, Taylor Farms said it will build on Earthbound Farm’s tradition of organic authenticity, new variety development, and quality focus with expanded regional organic growing and processing capability to better serve Earthbound Farm’s customers and consumers across North America.

Congratulations to both parties on this new chapter!
