The Riverside Company’s Acquisition of Parker Products

Haynes and Boone, LLP has represented Parker Products in the negotiation of an investment by The Riverside Company.

Parker Products and The Riverside Company have not disclosed the terms of the deal.

Fort Worth-based Parker Products is a leading provider of specialty ingredients for the baking, dairy, beverage, confectionery, RTE and snack, and foodservice industries.

Riverside has a growing portfolio of specialty food companies, including Tate’s Bake Shop, Nustef Foods, Uinta Brewing Company and YumEarth.

Parker’s leadership team, including company President Greg Hodder, is expected to remain in place after the acquisition is complete, the company said in a press release. Parker broke ground on a new state-of-the-art facility in far northwest Fort Worth in December and plans to relocate the company’s operations there in early 2018.
