Café Valley, a bakery industry business that manufactures and distributes high quality baked goods to the in-store bakery and foodservice channels, has announced the acquisition of the assets of Freed's Bakery. Located in Manchester, New Hampshire, Freed's Bakery is one of the largest iced mini cupcake manufacturers in North America and provides its customers both everyday and seasonal mini iced cupcakes.

Freed's Bakery, one of the largest iced cupcake manufacturers in North America, is known for its variety of vanilla and chocolate 12-count and 24-count cupcakes topped with innovative icing colors and designs. The company continuously evolves its seasonal and core everyday offerings to match the ever-changing needs of consumers, and the market, while keeping quality at the forefront of their values.

"This is an exciting time to be a leader in the bakery business. The acquisition of Freed's is a key step that expands our leadership position in thaw and sell baked goods. Our everyday and seasonally targeted range of iced mini cupcakes offers an indulgent, snack sized treat ideal for special events and gatherings. Iced mini cupcakes are a perfect complement to our core business of cakes, muffins, coffee cake bites, and croissants, and will provide a key growth area for our retail and foodservice partners. We are incredibly excited to be able to better serve our customers with this acquisition," said Cafe Valley CEO Brian Owens.

"This opportunity offers tremendous growth opportunities for both Café Valley and our partners. We are known for our intense customer focus and mini iced cupcakes will give us an additional avenue to support our loyal partners," said Gary Coyle, vice president of in-store bakery.
