NEWARK, NJ (PRWEB) May 22, 2012
D’Artagnan, a leading purveyor of gourmet meats, foie gras, mushrooms and truffles to chefs, retailers and consumers announced they have signed an agreement to acquire certain operating assets of Pasture to Plate, Inc., a Cicero, Illinois based supplier to restaurants in the Midwest. Chicago becomes the hub for D’Artagnan’s Midwest expansion plans.
Based in Newark, NJ, D’Artagnan is expanding their geographical coverage into the Chicago area, which will enable them to more efficiently service their growing client base in the Midwest. From their Newark warehouse, D’Artagnan’s fleet of trucks delivers daily to restaurants and retailers from Boston to Washington, D.C.
“We’re very excited about the acquisition,” said Ariane Daguin, owner and CEO of D’Artagnan. “For the first time in our 27-year history, we are expanding through an acquisition, and it’s a great way to expose our brand to a wider audience.”
“We entered Chicago last year as a one day per week purveyor and this grants us immediate logistical status as a full service provider,” added Andrew Wertheim, President of D’Artagnan.
