Athenos generated net sales of almost $90 million last year. Sales of feta cheese rose 22% by volume versus a year ago, according to IRI data cited in a release from Emmi Roth.

“We take pride in providing the best specialty cheeses to our customers and consumers, and adding Athenos to our family will strengthen our product range and allow us to offer another great line of products,” said Emmi Roth president Tim Omer.

The deal must still be approved by regulatory authorities.
