Honor Foods expands its foodservice redistribution capability through Burris Logistics’ purchase of the R.W. Zant.
Honor Foods announced the expansion of its food service distribution network in the western United States through acquisition. The company’s parent, Burris Logistics, acquired Los Angeles-based R.W. Zant, which specializes in the storage and distribution of meats and proteins.
The transaction closed on June 21, 2022. Complimentary product portfolios will expand the capabilities of both companies, including immediate increased logistical benefits provided by Burris Logistics’ cold chain assets and freight brokerage via Trinity Logistics. Both companies share a proud family heritage and partner-first mentality.
Honor Foods represents more than 300 brand-name suppliers of frozen and refrigerated products.
“This acquisition provides both Zant and Honor customers with new product offerings that can streamline their procurement and logistics processes and operations,” Walt Tullis, president of Honor Foods, stated in a news release. “The depth and breadth of core categories like protein, dairy and frozen vegetables & fruits, in addition to traditional value-added food service items, ensures our customers that they are getting the best product selection at the best pricing.”
