Kronos acquires Pita King bread manufacturer
GLENDALE HEIGHTS, Ill. — Kronos is expanding its bread products line with its acquisition of Pita King's commercial baking assets.
The acquisition marks Kronos' foray into flatbread production. The company, which currently markets such items as Mediterranean Chef gyro family meal kit and Kronos Fillo Classics, now will market Pita King's authentic Middle Eastern pocket breads in a variety of sizes and formulations, including white and whole wheat.
"As one of the nation's largest Mediterranean food companies, we are continually expanding our product line with innovative, great-tasting products that are responsive to the needs of our customers," Kronos CEO Mike Austin said. "We believe Pita King's specialty breads will be very attractive to our chain, specialty, grocery and independent restaurant accounts."
