Standard Meat Co., a Fort Worth, Texas, protein packaging and portioning company, bought Syracuse Sausage of Ponder, Texas. Price was not disclosed.
Standard Meat is owned by the fourth generation of the Rosenthal family. Similarly, Syracuse Sausage has also been a family business, founded by Joe Musacchio and operated for the past decade by his brothers, Bobby and Anthony Musacchio.
The Rosenthal family originally partnered with Syracuse Sausage almost a decade ago. Syracuse Sausage serves national restaurant chains, major grocery stores, meal kit companies and other food-service firms — and will continue to do so as part of Standard Meat.
Tapped to lead the new division is food industry veteran Chris Horan, who began his food career in 1986 as a sales representative for Campbell Soup Co. and subsequently worked for numerous food companies, including HJ Heinz, Henri’s Foods, CTI Foods and Classic Foods.
