Riviana Foods expands operations with the acquisition of InHarvest
InHarvest is proud to announce that it is now part of Riviana Foods, Inc, America’s leading rice company. “The acquisition of the InHarvest business is an excellent fit and consistent with our strategic plan to expand our position in the specialty value-added rice, quinoa and grains markets,” said Enrique Zaragoza, President & CEO of Riviana. “We are excited about this expansion as we also look forward to welcoming InHarvest’s employees to the Riviana team.”
Both InHarvest and Riviana have a reputation for providing excellent products to our customers while also working with the cutting edge of rice production technology. The acquisition by Riviana Foods, a leader in the rice segment, ensures that InHarvest will be able to continue to offer our clients the best quality in specialty rice and grains possible.
This great investment expands Riviana’s operations and geographic footprint into California with two production facilities in Colusa and Woodland that are strategically located in the rice-growing area of the Western United States. In addition, with InHarvest’s focus on the foodservice, ingredients/industrial and retail/private label sectors, the purchase complements and enhances Riviana’s current business in those segments.
