Jack Link’s Beef Jerky, Minong, Wis., says it has reached an agreement to acquire a packaged meat snack products manufacturing facility in Bellevue, Neb., from Skylark Meats, LLC, a subsidiary of American Foods Group, LLC. Terms of the transaction, expected to close by the end of October, were not disclosed.

The company says the purchase will allow Jack Link’s to increase production capacity to meet growing consumer demand for the Jack Link’s brand. The meat snacks category has grown nearly 13% in 2012 to-date, and the acquisition could help further Jack Link’s position for future growth.

“Skylark Meat’s Bellevue plant is a perfect fit for our business with an experienced workforce and management team,” says Jack Link, CEO and chairman at Jack Link’s Beef Jerky. “The addition of this plant gives us the opportunity to expand on our existing manufacturing operations and enhance our ability to meet our customers’ needs.”

The Bellevue, Neb., facility is a current co-packer of some of Jack Link’s meat snack products.
