We are impressed with the accomplishments of the business under the stewardship of Kroger, and look forward to completing a seamless transition of the business to a standalone entity and partnering with Turkey Hill’s management team to drive significant growth through continued product innovation,” said Robert Pistilli, managing director of Peak Rock.

The acquisition of Turkey Hill represents Peak Rock’s eight current investment in the food and beverage industry.
