Oklahoma-based No Man’s Land Foods LLC, manufacturer of meat snacks, has been acquired by private-equity firm Bansk Group, according to a release from the firm. No Man’s Land was founded in 1997 and provides beef jerky and meat sticks through the U.S. convenience-store channel.
The brand has found success due in large part to its unique and authentic slow-drying production process, the release said, giving the jerky a distinct taste and texture — which has led to a loyal consumer following.
Bansk Group plans to expand No Man’s Land into new distribution channels and geographic markets across the country. No Man’s Land will continue to be led by CEO Pete Dillingham, president Clint Beagley and the existing leadership team. The brand will join Red’s All Natural in Bansk’s food and beverage portfolio — the firm acquired the Red’s All Natural frozen burrito and breakfast sandwich brand in January 2023.
