Fullerton, CA—On March 23, 2016, Pulmuone Foods Co., Ltd. signed an agreement to acquire all commercial assets and operations of the soy foods company, Vitasoy USA Inc. Pulmuone—a brand committed to providing authentic wholesome and all-natural foods like Wildwood meat and dairy alternatives—will now have full ownership of brands such as AZUMAYA, SAN SUI and top-selling tofu brand, NASOYA.
Pulmuone believes the acquisition of Vitasoy USA’s brands will be “highly complementary” and “synergistic operationally and logistically” for their sales and distribution. The acquisition gives Pulmuone the leading position in the U.S. tofu category as well as a platform for continued growth in tofu and beyond with combined production, distribution and market coverage.
H.Y. Lee, CEO of Pulmuone Food Co., Ltd., stated, “Pulmuone now has a strong national platform and presence that will not only drive manufacturing and logistic synergies, but will also enable us to leverage a comprehensive sales and distribution infrastructure to further drive availability of our brands and products within the USA.”
