US processor Hormel Foods has reached an agreement to acquire pit-smoked meat business Sadler’s Smokehouse.

Based in Henderson, Texas, Sadler’s Smokehouse is a family-owned business that specializes in premium and authentic pit-smoked meats for retail and foodservice customers.

Hormel Foods has been a customer of Sadler’s Smokehouse for over two decades.

Sadler’s Smokehouse will continue operations from its Texas facility and will report into the Refrigerated Foods segment of Hormel Foods. The transaction was structured as an asset sale and is expected to close in March 2020, subject to customary closing conditions.

“Sadler’s Smokehouse is a great company with an impressive history, talented team and an outstanding portfolio of on-trend products that resonate with consumers, customers and operators,”​ said Hormel Foods chairman of the board, president and chief executive officer Jim Snee. “This is a very strategic acquisition for our foodservice business and it gives us another successful brand to expand into the retail and deli channels.”

“Hormel Foods has an excellent reputation as one of the best food companies in the world,”​ said Sadler’s Smokehouse owner Harold J. Sadler. “We are excited for our employees and family knowing Hormel Foods will continue the Sadler family legacy.”
