RMH Foods acquired by Rocke Family Investor Group
The Rocke family announced today it has reacquired RMH Foods from Smithfield Foods, Inc. RMH Foods, a leading manufacturer of Fully Cooked Refrigerated Entrees including Milano’s Italian Grille entrees was founded in 1937 by the Jesse Rocke family. It was acquired in 2001 by Smithfield.
“We are grateful and excited to reacquire RMH Foods”, states Jonathan Rocke, President and CEO of the “new” RMH Foods. “Our relationship with Smithfield over the past eight years was beneficial but ultimately we believe we can be most successful for our customers and our ownership as an independent, innovative, family led Food Company. We’re convinced that making great food that is convenient and offers value is even more important to today’s consumers and we are committed to partnering with our customers to deliver relevant products that meet those needs.”
