Post Holdings Inc. agreed to acquire Willamette Egg Farms LLC, a Canby, Ore.-based producer, processor and wholesale distributor of eggs and egg products, for $90 million.

Willamette Egg owns two egg production facilities located in Oregon and Washington and has been operating since 1934. It produces shell eggs, specialty shell eggs, including cage-free and organic eggs, and value-added egg products, including liquid and hard cooked eggs.

It will be combined with Post’s existing Michael Foods egg business. Post acquired Michael Foods, a producer and distributor of eggs, potatoes and dairy products, for $2.45 billion in April 2014.
