Ina Garten Eyes Acquisition Of Contessa Premium

Ina Garten, is planning to buy the frozen food business that carries her name and brand from Contessa Premium Foods, Inc. “I feel I’m the best person to do a nationwide marketing and distribution plan. I’d like to buy it back because I think that’s the best thing for the brand," said Garten. Donald J. Binotto, Rresident and Chief Executive of Contessa Premium, confirmed on April 27, 2014, that Garten had expressed an interest in buying the frozen foods line. People familiar with Contessa Premium said its lenders were in the process of determining whether it is financially viable, but Binotto, who formerly ran StarKist, the tuna company, said no decisions had been made yet about the company’s future. Garten said she had no information about the company’s finances. “I think there is a need for good frozen foods, and there has been a great response to my frozen food line,” she said. “I want to keep it going, and think we can build a really great business.” She said if she were to win the Barefoot Contessa frozen line, she planned to expand it by adding new products and upholding the high quality. One of the reasons I got involved with Contessa Products was because the ingredients were all coming from the United States, which meant I didn’t have to worry about them, and because it has one of the most green plants in the country, “ Garten said, referring to environmental standards. Unfortunately, she said, “one problem is that it is a very expensive plant to run.”
