COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–FoodMaven today announced their acquisition of Anderson Boneless Beef as
part of an ambitious expansion plan for 2019. This acquisition allows
FoodMaven to add meat processing capabilities, while greatly expanding
their protein offerings.
“This is our first acquisition, and a big milestone for FoodMaven,” said
Patrick Bultema, FoodMaven Founder and CEO. “Not only will we grow our
company size, but we’ll be able to process oversupplied proteins which
is key for our mission of ensuring all food gets used with good purpose.”
Anderson distributes custom, fresh beef products in Colorado serving
over 400 customers that span the front range and mountain communities in
the food service, hospitality and grocery industries. The company was
founded in 1976 and is located in Denver.
Anderson’s business aligns perfectly with FoodMaven’s model to
distribute high-quality, natural food to restaurants and institutions,
creating a true farm to table system. FoodMaven will gain more than 400
new customers, as well as being able to offer customized cuts of meat.
More importantly, FoodMaven can capture and process otherwise lost meat
and redistribute it as part of their better stewardship of food.
“Joining FoodMaven gives Anderson Boneless Beef the opportunity to be
part of something bigger,” said Charlie Tan, founder and CEO of Anderson
Boneless Beef. “FoodMaven’s mission is so important, and we’re all
excited to be part of it.” Tan will continue on as a consultant for
three months to help steer the transition and will remain as an advisor
The addition of Anderson’s employees will increase FoodMaven’s company
size by adding 35 employees to their workforce. FoodMaven will onboard
Anderson employees immediately and expects minimal disruption to
Anderson’s business during the transition.
This acquisition, in addition to FoodMaven’s recent warehouse facility
upgrade in Denver, will take the company to a total of 62,250 square
feet of facility space.
FoodMaven creates new pathways for food lost in the system due to
oversupply, cosmetic imperfection or local food without effective
distribution channels. FoodMaven sells this food through an online
marketplace to restaurants and institutions like universities and hotels
and donates it to hunger-relief organizations to fulfill its mission of
all food used with good purpose. FoodMaven is good for profits, good for
people and good for the planet. For more information, please visit foodmaven.com.
