RFI of Blauvelt, NY, has acquired Alta Quality Nutrition of Modesto, CA, a contract manufacturer (both toll processing and turn-key manufacturing) involved in product development, and raw material handling in the dietary supplement and food industries since 2008. The Modesto facility has dry product processing capabilities including custom blending, grinding, milling and capsule and tablet production.
In addition to bulk packaging, Alta also offers numerous packaging options such as bottling, canning, and pouching. The entire facility is Organic, Kosher and AIB certified. Dave Ackerman, President and CEO of Alta will become a member of RFI’s executive team and will spearhead business development on the West Coast.
“I am very pleased by our acquisition of Alta Nutrition on many levels,” says Jeff Wuagneux, president and CEO of RFI. “As we currently have multiple manufacturing sites in New York and Colorado, adding a site in California fulfills our strategic plan for our USA-based manufacturing capabilities. It also solidifies our vertical-integration strategy by allowing us to better service our customers on the West Coast. With this new location in California, we now have additional versatile blending, manufacturing and packaging options to offer, along with our existing facilities. We also gain David Ackerman and his team who will continue to help us grow RFI for years to come. David and I have been friends for many years and I am excited that he chose to become a part of the RFI family.”
“My team is excited about joining forces with RFI and taking our Modesto facility to an even higher level,” says Dave Ackerman, president and CEO of Alta Quality Nutrition. “Our customers will gain instant access to a broader spectrum of services and I personally look forward to working and helping the RFI team continue its successful growth.”
