The former Rise Baking manufacturing facility in Mexico, MO will house five production lines for specialty food ingredients.

Specialty food ingredients supplier Parker Food Group (PFG) announced Tuesday that the company acquired a former Rise Baking manufacturing facility in Mexico, MO to increase its production capacity. The 20-acre location will include five production lines that will produce Parker Products and Creative Food Ingredients brands of specialty food ingredients.

“Parker Food Group is expanding to support the continued growth of our customers and to improve service levels with reduced lead times,” Greg Hodder, president and chief executive officer of PFG, said in a company release. “We are excited to be working with many of the experienced Mexico Team to begin manufacturing a full complement of our baked inclusions and toppings lines at the facility.”

Based in Fort Worth, TX, PFG manufactures candy toppings and inclusions, baked items, crumbs and streusels, pralines and coated items, liquid bases and variegates, and whole cookies for CPG makers, foodservice companies, and specialty distributors.   

“Through this acquisition, we will continue to be a trusted supplier and a valued thought partner to our customers,” said Hodder.
