             Profile: Privately owned, 2 Sisters Food Group was started in 1993 by businessman Ranjit Singh
             Boparan, now its CEO (Boparan Holdings). The company, a diversified food processor serving the
             retail, foodservice and contract manufacturing sectors, now oversees 42 manufacturing sites, 35 of
             them in the UK and Ireland, six in Holland, and one in Poland. Its offering covers: ready meals,
             accompaniments, chilled pizza and pies. Overall, the business is divided equally in terms of sales
             between grocery products and its bread-cake-milling operations. A big boost in its business came
             in April 2011, when its £ 342 million takeover bid was accepted by giant food manufacturer
             Northern Foods, Leeds (chilled, bakery and frozen foods). The latter’s nearly £ 1 billion in
             revenues doubled 2 Sisters Food Group sales, putting it very nearly on the level enjoyed by the
             UK’s largest domestic food processor (also in this database). 2 Sisters followed up in December
             2011 offering £ 30 million cash for Brookes Aana, a £ 203.6 million UK manufacturer of ready
             meals, accompaniments, chilled pizza and pies.

       itself “America’s Towel Superstore,” selling customized towels in all sizes with all embellishment
       techniques, including the silkscreen process. Clients can replicate their ads, package designs and
       original art on not only towels, but ties, banners, bags, jackets, and other fabrics, using the
       company’s new Matrix Total Coverage process, a patent-pending system producing a printing
       look like full-bleed litho reproductions. Another new product is the company’s Pak Tites
       compressed products (also patent pending), which compresses T-shirts, towels and other cotton-
       rich items under 50 tons of pressure to a fraction of their original size. (Normal laundering
       removes the wrinkles). Printed labels are then shrink-wrapped around the compressed item to keep
       the product clean and moisture-free. Products also can be compressed into innovative shapes
       (football, heart, postcard, etc.).

       packer of these private label items in the entire nation. In fact, if the 4C brand and the private
       label brands of iced tea mix can be combined, then 4C Foods packs and sells more iced tea mix
       tonnage than does Lipton. 4C Foods packs only 100% pure imported grated cheese with no fillers
       or additives. New cheese packing equipment has been recently installed, as the company has now
       expanded into the upscale cheese market. The company now can utilize and pack in glass jars,
       composite cans, polyethylene containers and ever-increasing net-weight can sizes. Recent
       additions to the grated cheese line include 8-ounce deli cups of Parmesan and Romano cheese, 3-
       pound bags of Parmesan and Romano grated cheese, and 14-ounce composite cans of Parmesan
       and Romano grated cheese. Bread crumbs are now packed in a super size 46-ounce net- weight
       can, while iced tea mix is packed in a new 96-ounce-size net-weight can. 4C Food is now “OU”

       Profile: Formerly called AC Humko, ACH Food Companies is a division of Associated British
       Foods plc (ABF), London, one of Europe’s largest food companies with sales of $16.3 billion
       operating in 44 countries and diversified in foods, ingredients, and retail stores. The company is
       traded on the London Stock Exchange (ABF). Web site: www.abf.co.uk. Its grocery division (£
       3.2 billion) includes ACH Food Companies, Inc., a major supplier of specialty food ingredients
       (herbs and spices) and a leading store brand supplier of cooking oils, pan sprays, shortenings,
       nondairy creamers, and olive oils in the United States. The division operates six manufacturing
       plants in the US. (In July 2004, parent company ABF acquired the international yeast, bakery
       ingredients and US herbs and spices business from Australia's Burns Philp Group, including Tone
       Brothers division (the latter consolidated into Specialty Brands, Ankeny, IA--a company formerly
       listed in this database.) ACH has gone through some recent troubling times: its partnership with
       Heartland Sweeteners and Merisant, the maker of Equal brand sweetener, to provide grocers with
       a single source of private label zero calorie sweeteners, was ended with Merisant taking over (and
       in January 2009 declaring bankruptcy). During the first half of fiscal 2009 (ending in September
       2009), ACH took a long position in vegetable oil futures at values now well above their current
       market value. During fiscal 2009, ACH integrated its foodservice, specialty food ingredients, and
       retail private-label bottled oil business under its partner, Stratas. The latter, a joint partnership,
       formed between ACH and Archer Daniels Midland in October 2008, has allowed ACH facilities to
       transfer in phases their production of commodity oils to ACH’s low-cost facilities now being
       operated by Stratus, thus leaving ACH to concentrate on its branded food Business. Stratas Foods,
       LLC, (now listed separately in the SOURCE BOOK) manufacturers. markets and distributes
       packaged oil products throughout North America. ACH’s parent company Associated British
       Foods also now operates 191 Primark fashion stores in the UK, Republic of Ireland, Spain, the
       Netherlands, Portugal, and Germany. Their sales were up 21% to £ 2.3 billion in the current year.
       These stores are own brand outlets, selling apparel under the Primark, Atmosphere and other store
       brands.

       Profile: Agro Tech Foods, a subsidiary of ConAgra (also in this database), operates 14
       manufacturing plants in India, primarily providing refined edible oils (Rupee 5.9 billion +9.3%),
       but expanding its packaged food business (Rupee 1.2 billion +26.5%). The company produces
       cooking sprays and cooking oils, ready-to-eat popcorn and Indian meals—under its own brands.
       But with India opening up to private label business and ConAgra pushing its own private label
       business, it’s likely this company will push more into private label as well as it expands its RTE
       meals, peanut butter and cooking sprays business.


       Products/Services: Edible oils, packaged food products

       Profile: Alcoa Consumer Products (ACP), Rich mond, VA, recently was part of Alcoa Inc.,
       Pittsburgh, the world’s largest producer of primary and fabricated aluminum and aluminia. ACP
       produced packaging and consumer goods, including non-aluminum products such as: foil, film
       and pa per products for retail and food service customers. This unit was divided into four areas:
       Reynolds Consumer Products (foil), Presto Products (plastic bags, wraps, containers), Baco
       Consumer Products (household wraps and bags) in the UK, and Reyco (packaging) in South
       America. In 2009, Alcoa weathered its toughest year in decades, after aluminum prices dropped by
       50%+ early in 2009 from their peak in 2008: Its total revenues dipped by 31.6 % to $18.4 Billion.
       As a result, Alcoa in March 2008 divested its packaging and consumer business for $2.7 billion to
       billionaire Graeme Hart of New Zealand, who owns the Rank Group. Mr. Hart, in turn, spun off
       the acquired company, renaming it Reynolds Packaging Group or Reynolds Group Holdings,
       Lincoln shire, IL. (See that company’s listing in this database.)

       Profile: During 2000, this company’s predecessor, Inverness Medical Technology, had been
       renamed from Selfcare, Inc., tracing its roots back to 1991, as a women’s health company. The
       company evolved into a leading force within the medical technology field with products for people
       with diabetes, such as its proprietary, electrochemical blood glucose test strips. In February 1998,
       the company acquired Can-Am Care, a dominant player in the diabetes private brands business;
       eventually, that operation was completely absorbed into the Inverness business. The company
       renamed itself Inverness Medical Innovations in 2001. Since then, the company, through strategic
       acquisitions (some 65 over a 10-year period), has grown and in July 2010 changed its name again
       to Alere Inc. (Alere in Latin means “to care for.”) Its global leading products and services, plus
       new product development, all focus on cardiology, women’s health, infectious disease, oncology
       and toxicology. Today, Alere (NYSE: ALR) is positioned as the global leader in pregnancy
       fertility/ovulation testing and bone therapy (osteorporosis) monitoring and in the US market, the
       number one provider of store-name diabetes-care and women’s family planning products. In
       January 2010, Alere, for $62.6 million in cash, sold its vitamins and nutritional supplements
       business, including its entire private label and branded nutritional business. The company also has
       continued its acquisition strategy in 2010, expanding its business including its international
       markets.

       Profile: Algood Food was launched August 1, 1985, with the purchase of the Louisville (KY)
       plant of the Shedd’s Food Products Division from its owner, The Beatrice Companies. This
       facility, producing various food products for some 75 years, was primarily a peanut butter plant at
       the time of the takeover. Algood has since expanded its business from retail private label peanut
       butter into other markets: industrial, food service, export, contract manufacturing and the U.S.
       government. In June 1992, the company acquired a vacated food manufacturing facility in
       Lawrenceburg, KY, equipped with new, modern processing equipment designed for the
       production of jams, jellies, preserves, salsas, etc. In April 1993, preliminary production of jellies,
       jams and preserves began. In July 2002, the company moved its peanut butter manufacturing to a
       new 100,000 square foot facility in Louisville, KY. Algood claims to be the first private label
       manufacturer to: use a fully staffed in-house microbiological lab, put foil seal on glass jars, offer
       both Jif and Skippy brand-like formulations, convert from glass to PET jars, nitrogen flush the
       head space on peanut butter jars, and to insert PB&J strip in PET containers. In January 2012, the
       company acquired WindStore Farms LLC, Paris, KY, a producer of blackberry jam since 1985.

       Profile: Established in 1926, Allen Canning Co., a family owned and operated business, has been
       growing and packing vegetables for the retail and foodservice trade under a number of brands: The
       Allens, Popey, Trappey’s, Veg-All, etc. The company, operator of seven plants in five states,
       prides itself on using family farmers as its source of supply for beans, greens, spinach, sweet
       potatoes, etc. In 2003, Allen Canning purchased Birds Eye’s Veg.All brand, followed in 2004 by
       its Freshlike canned vegetable brand. In December 2006, Allen Canning agreed to buy Birds Eye’s
       non-branded frozen vegetable business, thus picking up three frozen food processing plants, a
       couple of former Birds Eye foodservice brands (Chill Ripe and Garden Classics) and—most
       significant of all—the private label retail frozen food business of Birds Eye. As part of its debut in
       frozen foods, the company in addition to changing its name to Allens, Inc., also purchased Flint
       Riber Foods, Montezuma, GA. Thus Allens emerged as a major private label supplier in canned
       and frozen vegetables, operating now out of 13 facilities in seven states. Apparently, its love affair
       with frozen foods has thawed: In March 2012, the company was in the process of selling four of
       its plants (three frozen vegetable processors and a packaging center) to Bonduelle, based in France
       negotiated through its Canadian subsidiary (also in this database). If completed, this will position
       Bonduelle Group as a major player in prepared vegetables in North America, including more
       commitment to private label business.


       Products/Services: Canned and frozen vegetables, breaded vegetables, onion rings.

       Profile: Argus’ first camera, known as the Model A, was introduced in 1936 as the first low-cost,
       easy-to-use 35mm film camera in the world. Its popularity convinced Kodak to switch their film
       manufacturing from a 126 to a 35mm format. Argus followed up with its Model C2 in 1938, the
       first of a distinctively shaped, square-cornered, range finder camera, called the “Brick.” Argus’
       famous Model C3, introduced in 1939, remained the best-selling 35mm camera in the world for
       almost three decades. During the 1970s, Argus survived through partnerships with overseas
       factories. Investors took over in 1985 and, in 1990, Argus was sold to Concord Camera Corp.
       (also listed in this database), where it was split off from Concord to its present owner. The
       company now offers a full range of quick photographic products; point-and-shoot 35mm cameras,
       single-use 35mm cameras, ultra 35mm, video transfer systems, power zoom cameras (35 up to 118
       mm), and digital image products. Its latest offering: disposable cameras with or without flash and
       more recently, digital cameras (six models).

       Sales % in EB: N/A


       Export Markets: North America, Australia, Europe


       Profile: This business began as a small grocery shop in 1879 in a small village in Scotland.
       Baxters since then grew in reputation, producing branded preserves, condiments, pickles and
       chutney. It now produces more than 100 products, including canned and fresh soups. Baxters in
       mid 2003 acquired CCL Foods in the UK, a producer of condiments and pickles, helping to boost
       its own brand business in the United Kingdom. Its first move abroad came in September 2004 with
       the acquisition of a private label soup company, Soup Experts Inc., the largest of its kind in
       Canada. Baxters’ strategy was to build a base in North America for its branded products. The
       Canadian plant is ISO 9002 certified, operating with a HACCP food safety system. Baxters’
       international interests ignited again in 2007 with the acquisition of two companies, one in
       Australia and one in Poland: Solo Mio, Australia’s second biggest supplier of marinated and
       flame-grilled vegetables, pestos, and tapenades, marketed under the Bamboleo and Argents Hill
       brands; and a producer of pickled onions in Poland. Both these operations, together with the
       Canadian operation, not only broadened Baxter’s product line but also serve as springboards to
       more export business. Baxters is managed by Audry Baxter, whose great grandparents founded
       the company. It remains family controlled, still located in Foschabers, continuing to resist any
       takeover bids, and it remains adamantly behind its branded business in soups, jams, pickles,
       preserves, chutneys, and sauces.


       Products/Services: Canned soups (ready-to-serve and condensed), broth, gravies, and sauces.

       management buyout of BFF by two company directors. Renamed BFF Technical Fabrics, the
       company was unable to cope with mounting energy costs and put its four production lines up for
       sale in November 2006. BFF was recognized as one of the leading manufacturers of converted
       non-woven products, producing a vast variety of fabrics, supplying markets throughout the world
       for a number of end users from interlining, to medical products, to products for technical
       applications as well as converted retail products. BFF some 25 years ago was the first non-woven

       Sales % in EB: 39


       Export Markets: All continents—worldwide


       Profile: Bonduelle, a family owned business, is the world’s leading producer of processed
       vegetables: canned 52.9% of its revenues, frozen 25.2%, and fresh 21.9%. Some 24.8% of its
       revenues come from outside Europe. Non-European sales growth slightly outpaced its European
       results during this fiscal year (sales up 11.2% for the year versus a 10.5% gain in European
       turnover). This is where Bonduelle has recently focused more attention. Starting in January 2012,
       for example, the company completed negotiations for the takeover of the agroindustrial and
       commercial assets of French cooperative CECAB in Russia and in the countries of the
       Confederation of Independent States (CIS). This is still subject to approval by government
       authorities. Operating in Russia since the 1990s, Bonduella has two plants in Hungary and one in
       Russia. Also, in January 2012, the company acquired some assets in Kelet-Food (Hungary) in
       order to increase its agroindustrial presence in Central Europe. This was followed up in March
       2012 with Bonduella’s announcement that it plans to take over three processing plants and a
       packaging center for frozen vegetables now operated by Allens, Inc., Siloam Springs, AR (also in
       this database). This is significant since Allens is a major private label supplier in canned and
       frozen vegetables. In 2006, Bonduella established a beachhead in North America by acquiring a
       23% equity interest in Aliments Carrière, Canada’s leading processor of canned and frozen
       vegetables. In July 2007, Bonduella took control of that company (€ 160 million with 37% of its
       sales in the US). This became Bonduelle North America subsidiary. The Canadian operation has
       focused primarily on foodservice in the US market, up until now. The Allens plants include
       significant retail business. This takeover also gives Bonduella a more solid footing in the United
       States. Overall, Bonduelle operates 42 production plants in Western Europe, Poland, Hungary,
       Russia, Canada, and Brazil. Once the Allens plant acquisition is approved, Bonduella also will be
       one of the major players in prepared vegetables in North America.


       Products/Services: Canned and frozen vegetables—artichokes, Parisian (round-shaped) carrots,
       “Minute Blends” (100% cooked ready for re-heat), cooked skin fries (with sauces around the
       vegetables), grilled vegetables, vegetable patties, and the biggest seller one-sieve whole string
       beans.

       Profile: Chiquita Brands International (NYSE: CQB) is a marketer and distributor of bananas and
       other fresh fruit plus value-added packaged salads. The company, which acquired Friday Canning
       Corp. in 1992, changed its name to Chiquita Processed Foods and consolidated this business as a
       subsidiary. Friday itself had developed into an industry leader, operating 21 plants in eight states
       throughout the Midwestern and northwestern United States, producing nearly 50 million cases of
       more than 25 different canned vegetables and food items. In May 2003, this vegetable processing
       division was sold to Seneca Foods Corp., Marion, NY. In February 2005, Chiquita Brands
       International purchased Fresh Express, a subsidiary of Performance Food Group (both Seneca and
       Performance are listed separately in this database). Fresh Express claims 44% of the bagged salad
       market in the US, generating $1.1 billion (13%) in revenues. Chiquita suffered a $320 million loss
       in 2008 , but improved business in 2009 with $90 million in profits, thanks to improvements in its
       value-added salads operation. The profit picture in 2010 turned sour, dropping to $57 million from
       $90 million. In November 2011, the company announced plans to consolidate its headquarters in
       Charlotte, NC.

       Sales % in EB: N/A


       Export Markets: N/A


       Profile: Clearwater Paper (NYSE: CLW) makes no secret about its future strategy: Grow its
       private label tissue business. Its recent acquisition of Cellu Tissue Holdings, Alpharetta, GA, a
       private label tissue product producer provides proof. While Clearwater’s fiscal net sales in 2010
       climbed by 9.6%, its net earning sunk by 66.7% to $98.8 million. This drop traces to the
       company’s $530 million pay out for Cellu Tissue, costing $155 million in cash plus another $375
       in debt financing. This deal closed just four days before Clearwater’s financial year ended. As a
       consequence, Clearwater’s first quarter 2011 net earning registered at $5.6 million versus just
       $500,000 in the comparable period a year earlier. Clearwater’s Consumer Products business
       skyrocketed in that recent quarter upward by 95.4% to $269.3 million, thanks to contributions
       from the new Cellu Tissue business. Clearwater’s pulp and paperboard business (which had
       represented 64.2% of its total 2010 sales) edged ahead by only 2% for 2011’s first quarter to
       $196.6 million. The shift in business priorities is evident. Cellu Tissue came packaged with a
       strong private label business, Atlantic Paper & Foil Corp., Hauppauge, NY, which was acquired
       by Cellu Tissue in July 2008. Clearwater Paper itself was formed on Dec. 16, 2008, from the
       Consumer Products subsidiary of Potlatch Corp., Spokane, WA. The owner spun off its pulp-
       based manufacturing businesses (pulp and paperboard and consumer products segments plus its
       wood products business in Lewiston, ID). Clearwater has since established a strong private label
       tissue business, which in 2010 represented some 57% of the total private label tissue products
       sales in the U.S. (Clearwater commands a 91% share of private label tissue sales in 11 western
       states.) Its Consumer Products segment, which generated $490 million in total 2010 sales,
       promises to increase with its recent announced plans to build a tissue converting facility in Shelby,
       NC, plus its takeover at year-end of Cellu Tissue. With more of a national presence, Clearwater’s
       total 2011 sales reportedly are approaching $2 billion, while its Consumer Products business now
       commands about half that volume.

       Export Markets: N/A


       Profile: ConAgra Foods is a leading branded consumer foods company, which markets familiar
       brands, such as Banquet, Chef Boyardee, Pam, Egg Beaters, Healthy Choice, Hunt’s, Orville
       Redenbacker’s, etc. The company’s private label business serves accounts in the retail and
       foodservice segments. ConAgra in this century has cut its revenues almost in half, due to a major
       divestment of its non-core businesses. This fiscal period, its net income recovered from the
       previous fiscal results (down by 25.8% to $725.8 million from 2009). Net income rose 12.6% to
       $817 million, thanks to some tightening of operations, divestments, and a few branded company
       acquisitions. Among acquisition, ConAgra, while staying focused on its core brand name
       business, looks to building its private label business. The company made two unsolicited bids in
       2011 (March & May) to acquire Ralcorp, a major private label foods producer (also in this
       database). Both bids were rejected, despite ConAgra’s wish to boost its private label sales from
       $850 million to about $4 billion. ConAgra has private label interests that cut across most of its
       product categories: refrigerated or shelf-stable foods, frozen foods, and snacks. In April 2010, the
       company paid $103 million in cash to buy Elan Nutrition, Grand Rapids, MI, a private label snack
       and nutrition bar manufacturer. In November, ConAgra increased its stake to 51.8% in Agro Tech
       Foods, a producer of foods and food ingredients in India (also listed in this database). Then in
       December 2011, ConAgra completed its acquisition of the 100-year-old National Pretzel Co.,
       Lancaster, PA, a $200 million private label manufacturer, operating three bakeries for pretzels of
       all shapes and sizes. ConAgra, looking to develop its international footprint and build its private
       label business, in 2012 purchased Del Monte Canada, Toronto, a $150 million producer of
       packaged fruits, fruit snacks and vegetables in Canada; and in April 2012 agreed to acquire
       Odom's Tennessee Pride, a $190 million producer of frozen and refrigerated breakfast sandwiches
       (second largest in the US) and sausages. In May 2012, it acquired Kangaroo Brands' pita chip
       operations and Odom's Tennessee Pride. In March 2012, the Company acquired Del Monte
       Canada. In November 2011, it acquired National Pretzel Company. In November 2011, ConAgra
       Foods acquired an additional equity interest in Agro Tech Foods Limited. In July 2012, ConAgra
       announced plans to purchase Bertolli and P.F. Chang’s Home Menu frozen meals businesses from
       Unilever PLC for a total cash consideration of $265 million. This marks its fifth takeover since
       July 2011.

Sales % in EB: 94 (E)


Export Markets: United States, Mexico, Europe, Asia


Profile: Cott Corporation (NYSE:COTT) is one of the world’s largest nonalcoholic beverage
companies and the world leader in retailer brand soft drinks. In terms of annual case volume, it
claims the number market share for private label in North America (US and Canada), United
Kingdom, and Mexico. Cott produces more than 500 exclusive brands for its customers; one of the
biggest is Walmart, taking 31% of Cott’s sales. Effective Jan. 28, 2012, that may change, as
Walmart ends its exclusive contract with Cott. The company’s net income dropped by 30.5% to
$59.8 million. Given the fact that the US carbonted soft drink market has been on the decline for
the past five years and given the fact that Cott in recent years has expanded out of soft drinks into
ready-to-drink teas, sparkling and flavored water, sports and energy drinks, and juice drinks and
juice-based smoothies, it was almost inevitable that Cott channel its strategies more into the non-
carbonated beverages area. Cliffstar Corp., Dunkirk, NY, (also in this database) reportedly has
been looking to sell its business since late 2009; so the July 2010 announcement that Cott agreed
to buy Cliffstar was not surprising. Cliffstar chairman Stanley Star said: "This transaction takes the
largest private label juice manufacturer (Cliffstar) and the largest private label carbonated soft
drink manufacturer (Cott) and forms North America’s largest private label beverage company."
Indeed, adding Cliffstar's $654 million in revenues (according to Cott) now produces the biggest
private label beverage firm in this industry: $2.2 billion+ in revenues. Cliffstar is one of the
leading suppliers of private label beverages and considered the largest producer of private label
apple-, grape-, and cranberry-juices and juice blends in North America. With Cliffstar assimilated,
Cott will reduce its carbonated soft drink sales from 61% of total revenues to 43%, while its juice
drinks volume (in the UK only) at 11% will shoot upwards to 36% of total revenues. Waters' sales
share will be reduced from 20% to 14% and Cott's separate product categories (energy 6%, sports
1%, and tea 1%) will be combined. Cott meantime has established corporate offices in the US:

       fire in 1943, the company survived and expanded its operations beyond the German-speaking
       community of Kitchener. Since the family name was not known or easily pronounceable, the
       family changed its name and the company identity to Dare—a brand name used on its candy
       packages (which approximated the sound of ‘Doerr’). Through the 1950s, the company moved
       away from bulk packaging into a new technology at the time, cellophane packages. To insure
       product freshness, Dare also innovated by adopting the coffee package, a bag sealed with wire, for
       its chocolate chip cookies. An attempt at reshaping Dare into a food conglomerate eventually led
       to a sell off of its nontraditional business with renewed concentration in the biscuit and candy area.
       Expansion and acquisitions led to a move into the cracker area with its Breton brand. The
       company set up a US subsidiary (Spartanburg, SC) and negotiated agreements with foreign
       manufacturers to market its products in 23 countries. Dare operates seven state-of-the-art product
       development and production facilities in Canada and the US. Its newest product: all-natural water
       crackers.

       Export Markets: Europe, Asia, South Africa, South America, EasternMediterranean, Australia,
       Mexico


       Profile: Dean Foods (NYSE:DF), the largest processor and distributor of dairy products in the US,
       suffered its most difficult year ever, as profit margins on private label milk declined significantly.
       Retailers were deep-discounting these products. It hurt Dean’s Fresh Dairy Direct-Morningstar
       business distributing some 50 regional brands, holding a dominant share of the private label milk
       business in US supermarkets. The results were telling on its net income down by 61.9% to $91.5
       million versus 2009. Its Fresh Dairy sales (including private label dairy case items representing
       56% of its product mix) totaled $10.2 billion. Dean has reported a shift from its branded products
       to private label products. But its bottom line has forced some divestment of its non-core business:
       dairy-based chilled yogurt, milk, and other dairy items in the UK; and its planned sale of
       Mountain High and its private label yogurt operation (part of the Fresh Dairy Direct operation.
       The company had previously renamed its Branded Products Group as WhiteWare-Alpro Foods
       ($1.9 billion sales in 2010), which sells dairy and plant-based products (#1 in soy beverages
       globally and #1 in organic dairy brand in the US market). Altogether, Dean operates more than
       100 plants. UPDATE: For 2011, Dean Foods reported net sales up by 7.9% to $13.1 billion, while
       suffering a loss from continuing operations of $1.6 billion. Its private label yogurt business was
       divested during the year.

       Total 2010 Sales Volume: $2.3 Billion ( € 1.7 Billion) -3.6%
       Sales % in EB: N/A


       Export Markets: Europe/North America/Asia/Africa -- some 25 countries.


       Profile: This Spanish company (#1 food group in that country), a producer of sugar, milk, rice,
       pasta, and biotechnological products for health as well as other products, through acquisitions
       over the past few years, has emerged as the world leader in the rice sector and the number two
       producer of pasta products. Ebro Foods, formerly called Ebro Puleva, also is the market leader in
       Spain for sugar and milk. In 2010, however, Ebro sold its dairy business. Its net profits for the
       year soared by 120.2% to € 388.8 million. Its ongoing strategy: taking over leading brand
       manufacturers (some of whom also supply private label). It now controls some 60 brands--and
       very likely tolerates the private label business acquired through those takeovers. The company
       emerged from an acquisition by sugar producer, Azucarera Ebro Agricolas S.A. of the dairy firm,
       Puleva S.A. in Spain. While more than half its revenues derive from Spain, the company has
       mounted an aggressive international acquisition program. A significant development came in
       2004, when it acquired Riviana Foods Houston, TX. Ebro had already formed partnerships with
       Riviana’s Belgium and United Kingdom subsidiaries, selling rice, dried fruit and other foods.
       Riviana is one of the largest sellers of rice in the US. In April 2005, Ebro acquired Panzani SAS,
       Lyon, France, a major producer of dry and fresh pasta, sauces, rice and couscous. This company is
       now expanding into frozen foods Ebro also took control of one of Europe’s top rice producer,
       Herba Group. In June 2006, Ebro acquire New World Pasta, Harrisburg, PA, for $362.5 million,
       which added a number of brands (Healthy Harvest, Ronzoni, Skinner, Prince, America Beauty,
       San Giorgio, and Creamette--all in the U.S., plus the number one pasta brand in Canada, Catelli).
       New World had emerged from 18 months of Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in December 2005.
       For an encore, Ebro in July 2006 announced plans to buy Kraft’s Minute Rice business in the US
       and Canada. Minute Rice is the number two rice brand in Canada and number 5 in the US. In July
       2007, the company bid to acquire Germany’s leading pasta acompany, Birkel Teigwaren Gmbh. In
       its international expansion, Ebro Pueleva becomes the number one market leader in its respective
       product categories. In the current year, raw material costs contributed to a 72.8% drop in operating
       income. But overall revenues were strong, helped especially in its rice business. In the pasta
       business, the company has introduced Smart Taste (high calcium, high fiber) pasta under its
       brands and started to develop microwaveable pasta. Recently, the company formed Ebro North
       America to oversee the Riviana and New World Pasta business in North America. In dairy
       products, microwaveable ready-to-eat milk and baby cereals also are now being developed.

       Profile: In November 2010, American Safety Razor (ASR), which four months earlier had filed for

       reporting fiscal 2011 sales of $4.6 billion as a brand manufacturer of personal care and household
       products. Energizer paid $301 million in cash and assumed ASR’s liabilities. ASR had a long
       history in the store brand shaving razor and blades business, tracing back to 1875. At the time of
       this latest takeover, the company, then operating as Personna American Safety Razor, was the
       fourth largest producer of wet-shaving blades and the largest private label blades supplier in the

       a division of Cascades, Inc. of Kingsey Falls, Canada, was sold. The parent company continues as
       a producer of recycled paper. Its adult incontinence business went to SCA Molnlycke (Canada),
       owned by SCA Molnlycke of Sweden (also in this database). The feminine hygiene business
       became Fempro, which continues with its brand, Incognito, as well as developing its private label
       business. The company actually traces its beginning to 1984, when the French company,
       Kaysersberg, joined Cascades Inc., to market sanitary napkins under the Vania brand. That
       identity was changed to Incognito in 1990 and six years later, the company was reorganized as a
       new private enterprise, under Fempro Inc. The company claims to be the most important producer
       of feminine hygiene products in Canada and ranked second in North America.

       handled through First Quality International (*except Canada)


       Profile: First Quality Hygienic, started in 1990, is a privately held business that operates through
       three divisions: absorbent hygienic products, paper products, and non-woven materials, serving
       the healthcare, retail, and commercial channels. The company manufactures and markets adult
       incontinence products, tampons and wet wipes. Its manufacturing facility is a state-of-the-art,
       1,300,000-square-foot plant, located in McElhattan, PA. The firm supplies private label tampons
       to more than 50 top retailers in the food, drug, and mass merchandiser classes of trade. The
       company sells Femtex® value brand Open-End and Rounded-Tip Card board Applicator
       tampons, a full line of Prevail® value brand adult incontinence products, as well as spun bound
       non-woven materials. Line extensions and new products are included in its future plans. In June
       2007, its 7th production line began operations; while plans for its 8th major production line were
       announced with scheduled production beginning in the first quarter of 2009. This new line
       incorporates the latest Reifenhauser technology for spinning and melt blowing and includes the
       company’s proprietary features. This company has established a new sister company to enter the
       baby diaper business--a natural extension with its expertise in absorbent hygiene products. In
       April 2008, the company paid $330 million in cash to acquire the Retail Products Business of
       Covidien Ltd., Hamilton, Bermuda. This portion of Covidien (a $9 billion enterprise) showed sales
       of $744 million in fiscal 2007, covering infant care products (diapers and training pants), in
       continence products (protective underwear, bladder control pads, adult briefs, etc.), and feminine
       hygiene products (liners, ultra thin pads and maxis with wings). Covidien’s retail business
       supplied 17 of the top 20 retailers in North America. The acquisition for First Quality promises to
       enhance its diversified product portfolio plus fill out a full range of adult incontinence, feminine
       hygiene, wet and dry wipes, and baby diapers. First Quality also is modernizing its Macon, GA
       absorbent hygienic plant. UPDATE: In 2010, this company proposed building a 2 million-square-
       foot tissue and towel manufacturing plant in Anderson, SC, an investment initially starting with
       $250 million, but said to approach $1 billion to be earmarked over the next decade. The new plant
       was scheduled to open late in 2011.

       Total 2011 Sales Volume: $2.8 Billion +7.8%; DSD Sales:$2.3 Billion +9.7%; Warehouse
       Segment Sales: $508.1 Million +1.1%


       Sales % in EB: 18.1


       Export Markets: N/A


       Profile: Founded in 1919, Flowers has grown organically and through acquisitions over the years
       to become the second largest company, based on its market share, in the US fresh baking industry.
       Recent industry consolidation has helped: In 2000, there were eight major companies, now only
       four survive with the sale of Sara Lee’s (also in this database) North American Fresh Baking
       business to Grupo Bimbo. Also, one of the remaining top companies, Hostess Brands filed for
       bankruptcy in January 2012. Flowers (NYSE:FLO) today operates two businesses: direct store
       delivery (DSD) from 32 bakeries (fresh bread, buns, rolls, tortillas, and snack cakes) sold to retail
       and foodservice accounts; and warehouse segment from 10 bakeries (snack cakes and breads and
       rolls) supplied fresh and frozen to national retail, foodservice, ending, and copacker accounts. The
       company also operates 241 discount bakery stores, selling returned and surplus products ($59
       million total sales). In May 2011, Flowers acquired Tasty Baking, owner of the TastyKake brand.
       One year later, Flowers announced plans to acquire Lepage Bakeries, Inc., Auburn, ME for $370
       million in cash and stock. This brings in two more brands, Country Kitchen and Barowsky’s plus a
       broad range of breads, buns and rolls; additionally, Lepage strengthens Flower’s presence in the
       Northeast, bringing its total SDD coverage from 64% up to 70% of the US population. Some
       21.6% of company business comes from Walmart/Sam’s Club. While brands are a priority--its
       Nature’s Own brand topped sales of $935 million in 2011--store brand business plays a key role in
       helping the company to effectively use available production and distribution capability as well as
       expand its total retail shelf space. This business also accommodates its retail customers who lately
       look to increase their own brand business.

       Profile: This privately held company was started some 40 years ago by a Swiss immigrant who,
       after being drafted into the army, opened a two-man operation in Cleveland. In the early 1960s,
       the company entered the private label business as well. The company since has become the
       seventh largest cheese company in the US—still very leanly operated, maintaining close contact
       with its customers. In 1988, Great Lakes purchased a cheddar cheese plant in New York state and
       has since distinguished itself with Gold Medal awards in cheddar and Mozzarella cheese
       competition. Also the firm has introduced packaging innovations. The firm sells blocks of
       cheddar, Mozzarella and provolone to the institutional/foodservice sector as well. Today, Great
       Lakes Cheese operates five plants, the newest opened some two+ years ago in LaCrosse, WI.
       Products/Services: Prepackage cheese; bars, slices, exact weight and random, shredded cheeses;
       bulk/block Mozzarella, provolone, New York cheddar, Monterey Jack, and bags of dry sweet

       Export Markets: Western Europe, United States


       Profile: Troubling times in the economy--disposable income down, inflation up, taxes up,
       unemployment up--kept this leading convenience food manufacturer’s profits flat at € 1.5 billion
       for the year. The company provides chilled, frozen and ambient foods for both the retail and
       foodservice trade. Its fiscal 2011 revenues from continuing operation rose, especially in its
       Convenience Food Business (91% of revenues) climbing 8%. That segment’s operating profits
       advanced by 5.3%. Greencore’s Ingredients & Property business, however, representing about 9%
       of revenues, continues to decrease. During the year, its malt business was ended, while the water
       and Continental businesses in the Convenience Foods division were disposed of as well. A
       tempting merger with one of its competitors, Northern Foods (also in this database) fizzled early
       in the year; but Greencore did afterward acquire Uniq plc, helping to boost its food-to-go
       operation. That area plus its prepared meals and groceries represent the company’s three biggest
       categories. Overall, the company operates 16 convenience foods facilities in the United Kingdom
       and another three in the US. In April 2008, Greencore acquired Home Made Brand Foods Inc.,
       Newburyport, MA, (Tel: 978-462-3663) a regional Northeast producer of fresh foods. Greencore
       USA continues to grow, having acquired a small sandwich manufacturer, On A Roll Sales,
       Brockton, MA, in December 2010. Private label is very much part of its North American strategy.
       Products/Services: Convenience foods (chilled foods, prepared meals, dry groceries).

       Profile: Still under the control of the Besnier family, since 1933, this private company has
       emerged as what it claims to be the world’s number one dairy producer. The company seeks to
       grow through acquisitions, such as these recent takeovers: Forlasa, Puleva, and Sanutri (all in
       Spain), Rachel’s (in the United Kingdom), and Lemnos cheese (Australia). One of its biggest
       takeovers, however, occurred in July 2011 with 83.3% stake in Parmalat SpA (€ 4.5 billion in
       2011 revenues +4.4%), a world leader in dairy products: cheeses, milk, chilled dairy (yogurt and
       desserts), butter and cream, fruits, infant and clinical nutrition, dairy ingredients, etc. Parmalat
       suffered a financial meltdown in 2003, facing € 14 billion in debts, while its founder, Calisto
       Tanzi, was convicted of fraud and eventually imprisoned. Through the efforts of its former CEO,
       Enrico Bondi, Parmalat recovered, reducing its debts to about € 34 million. But with the takeover
       by Lactalis, Bondi left the company. Lactalis has become a specialist in milk collection and dairy
       processing, while generating most sales in cheese (36% of revenues), then liquid milk (25%),
       followed by chilled products and butter/cream (each at 11%), and nutrition and ingredients (10%),
       the latter covering infant nutrition, gluten and allergen-free foods, clinical nutrition, etc. Some
       25% of its sales are in France, 18% in Italy, 20% in the rest of Europe, and 20% in the Americas.
       Lactalis markets such bands as Président, Bridal, Lactel, Sorrento, Rondele, Lecatelli, etc. Its
       private label interests are strong in certain countries, such as Spain and the UK. By virtue of its
       sales volume, Lactalis is likely one of the world’s largest private label dairy and food companies.
       Its Lactalis American Group, Buffalo, NY, recently introduced a new film material made partially
       from plant-based plastic (bioplastics using polylactic acid).

       Profile: Hansmann’s Mills traces its origins back to 1832, when it was established as Tanners Mill,
       then renamed the Rorapaugh Mill, taking its name from a Civil War captain who purchased the
       operation in 1865. By 1911, Frederick H. Hansmann became proprietor and in 1933 formulated
       his famous self-rising pancake mixes. These products were believed to be the first in the US to
       offer a “just add water” feature. Today, the firm offers three types of baking mixes: health-
       conscious, premium, and standard formulas. Private label business recently has developed into a
       major commitment.

       Profile: Imperial Sugar (Nasdaq: IPSU), one of the largest processors and marketers of refined
       sugar in the United States to food manufacturers, retail grocers and foodservice distributors, has
       witness its prospects sour over the recent past. In August 2001, emerging from eight-months of
       bankruptcy protection, the company’ growth continued, buttressed by some 97% of its
       consolidated net sales in refined sugar. In 2007, Imperial Sugar teamed up with Ingenios Santos
       Group in Mexico to market the latter’s sugar in Mexico and export it to the US. The retail portion
       of its fiscal 2011 sales represent 37%, of which 68% is in private label. The company produces
       refined sugar from raw cane sugar and markets its products to retailers, foodservice distributors,
       and industrial food manufacturers. On Feb. 8, 2008, an industrial explosion destroyed the
       company’s storage silos and packaging capability at its Portwentworth, GA, sugar refinery. That
       facility accounted for 60% of its refining capability. By early 2009, the company expected to start
       bulk sugar production again. Also, in 2009, the company planned to buy out its partner’s (Edward
       Billington & Son) 50% share of Wholesome Sweeteners, a producer of organic, natural, and Fair
       Trade certified honeys, syrups, agaves, and other sweeteners. Its net loss of $53.4 million in fiscal
       2011, due to higher raw sugar costs, however, has dramatically changed its strategies since then.
       In October 2011, its 50% interest in Santos was sold, followed in March 2012 by the sale of its
       50% equity interest in Wholesome Sweeteners to the investors, Arlon Group. Also, Imperial Sugar
       has sold its 1/3 interest in a joint venture designed to build a new refinery at its former Gramery,
       LA site.

       Profile: Intercafe has a tradition of premium quality coffee, dating back to 1874 on the farm of the
       family Audelo. Its coffee is a special selection of mountain-grown Arabica coffee beans carefully
       roasted and ground to yield a rich balance of flavor, aroma, and body. Beans are hand-picked from
       the “Oaxaca Pluma” region in southern Mexico, which is internationally recognized for consistent
       high-quality harvests, providing ideal soil and climate conditions. Special care is taken, using
       spring water to clean the beans and sun rays to dry them over a five-day period. In decaffeinated
       mountain coffee beans, the natural method of hot water and steam is employed, never using
       chemical solvents to remove the caffeine. All beans are roasted to their peak flavor in small
       batches at its plant in Oaxaca, Mexico, then air-cooled until they are hard and brittle, then finally
       ground to obtain the desired body. The Audelo started a partnership with Grupo Herdez del Fuerte
       in 1993. Their brand is Cafe Blason, covering both roasted beans and ground coffee.

       Total 2011 Sales Volume: $6.7 Billion +11%


       Sales % in EB: N/A


       Export Markets: Global


       Profile: Jarden Corp. was renamed in 2002 from Alltrista (a manufacturer of plastic and metal
       products—some dating back to the 19th century and formerly a subsidiary of Ball Corp, but spun
       off in 1993). Jarden is a phenomenal story, its sales soaring since 2003 from $350 million up
       1,814% to nearly $7 billion. Traded on the NYSE: JAH, the company’s strategy basically has
       been through acquisition of iconic brands in a diverse range of products. The strategy works: its
       2011 net income shot upward by 94% to $205 million. Some of its leading brands are household
       names: Ball, Bee, Bicycle, Coleman, deBeer, Diamond, Rawlings, Shakespeare, Sunbean, etc.–
       some in continuous use for over 100 years. While there were no significant acquisitions in 2011,
       the previous year saw three important additions. In April, for $500 million, the Mapa Spontex
       Baby Care and Home Care businesses of Mapa Spontex Group, a Paris-based global manufacturer
       of baby feeding bottles and other accessories in addition to health care items, such as condoms,
       plus the home care categories, including sponges, rubber gloves and related cleaning products.
       Additionally, later in the year, Jarden purchased Aero Products International (air-filled mattresses
       for outdoor recreation, and Quickie Manufacturing Corp., a leading suppler of cleaning tools and
       supplies (mops, brooms, dusters, etc.). These companies fit well into the three core businesses of
       Jarden: Outdoor Solutions (recreational/sporting activities, such as tents, grills, sporting
       equipment, etc.), Consumer Solutions (small kitchen appliances like cookers, mixers, coffee
       makers, etc.), and Consumables (storage containers, matches, toothpicks, plastic cutlery, rope,
       sponges, fire logs, etc.). Jarden is on record saying that private label business does not fit its
       overall strategy. Yet for some product categories (those with dominant private label market share)
       and for some of the companies purchased in the past (Mapa Spondex in 2010 (previously listed in
       this database) and in 2006, Conros Corp. (still listed in this database for other product categories),
       private label remains viable for this company.


       Products/Services:Plastic cutlery, plastic straws, book matches, wood toothpicks, fire logs, etc.

       Profile: In 1922, an Italian immigrant opened a small pecan shelling company. Celebrating its 90th
       Anniversary in 2012, this company, operating under its founder’s name and managed by fourth
       generation family members, has become the second largest distributor of full-line nut products in
       the US. (Planters, the brand leader for US retail/vending in this product category, was started 16
       years earlier by another Italian immigrant.) John B. Sanfilippo & Son (NASDAQ: JBSS) today is
       a vertically integrated processor, marketer,and distributor of baking nuts, snack nuts, and nut-
       based products--one of the largest private label snack nut suppliers in the US. Its stock covers
       some 3,500 SKUs. JBSS operates five production facilities. In 1995, the company acquired the
       Fisher brand from Procter & Gamble. Higher costs of tree nuts, however, have impacted on its
       profits. For fiscal 2011, net income plunged by 80.6% to $2.8 million. The company has reacted
       by raising its prices and the trade reaction has not been positive; even some private label retail
       customers, balking at the higher prices, have dropped this company as a supplier. In March 2010,
       the company agreed to pay aggregate $32.9 million cash for Orchard Valley Harvest, Inc.,
       Modesto, CA, which in effect pushed John B. Sanfilippo beyond the snack and baking categories
       more into the produce business. Orchard Valley, which has an aggressive private label business,
       produces: mixed/roasted/salted nuts, snack mixes, dried fruit, chocolate nuts, fruit gels, and
       popcorn. The company now looks to becoming a leading fruit and nut provider to the produce
       section. Also, JBSS has introduced packaging refinements: In October 2011, its Fisher freshness,
       seal/standup bag debuted.


       Products/Services:Snacking nuts, baking ingredient nuts, extruded snacks, peanut butter, chocolate
       chips, candies (hard/chocolate-covered), natural snacks, trail mixes, sunflower seeds, dried fruit,
       corn snacks, sesame sticks

       Profile: The group’s operations comprise the Norwegian parent company Jordan AS and three
       foreign subsidiaries. Jordan AS manufactures and sells oral hygenic products (toothbrushes, dental
       sticks, dental floss, rinses) and household cleaning products (cloths and brushes). In addition, the
       company markets and distributes painting tools manufactured by its subsidiary, Anza AB., While
       this company traces its roots back to 1837, at a time when Oslo was called Christiania, the
       celebration of its 175th Anniversary in 2012 will be muted somewhat. The recent economic
       downturn in Europe and the February 2009 sale of its Wisdom Ltd. toothbrush operation (owned
       since 1996) in the United Kingdom have impacted on sales. Wisdom also sold into the US
       market. Jordan is still the market leader in the Nordic countries for its oral care and paint brushes;
       but its new product rollouts have not significantly helped boost sales. In 2010, the company
       moved into mouth rinses for the first time. It also introduced the Jordan Shiny White toothbrush,
       featuring a unique whitening air pad and blue polishing brushes. But its overall sales performance
       since 2006 has been up and down.

       Profile: The Joy Cone Company, a family owned and operated business under one family since
       1918, continues its tradition of “making one product—cones—better than any other company
       does.” The company, operating out of the largest single-cone manufacturing location in the US,
       has developed its own cone ovens (built right in its plant), while using a time-tested, family recipe
       that requires close attention to every detail of mixing the batter, baking the cones, then packaging
       the product. This firm is a major supplier to both the food- service and retail cone market. Since
       foodservice cones are 100% inspected and since each filled cone is handed across a store counter
       to the consumer, Joy Cone must provide a product that is defect-free. Its largest customers in
       foodservice are McDonald’s and Dairy Queen in the US and Canada. Joy Cone is the only
       manufacturer that offers a full product line for private label—cake cup, sugar cone, color cup,
       jumbo cup, waffle cones, and specialty cones. Peak season availability is guaranteed.

       on sourcing goods in Asia for developing countries: A$12.9 billion in soft goods, $6.7 billion in
       hard goods, and $399.1 million in logistics. Some 70% of its turnover centers on its trading
       activities, 26% in distribution, and 2% in logistics. Nearly 60% of its turnover ($11.9 billion)
       comes from the US and 21.5% from Europe. Lately, however, Li & Fung has been taking
       advantage of the growing domestic consumption throughout Asia: Its portion of business in the
       US and Europe slipped from 89% in 2010 to 81% in this current year. In January 2010, the
       company signed a sourcing agreement with Walmart Stores Inc., where its Direct Sourcing Group
       subsidiary will provide buying agency services to Walmart Group worldwide. Li & Fung also in
       2010 signed exclusive licensing deals with Kohl’s department stores (Jennifer Lopez and Marc
       Anthony lifestyle brands) and with Macy’s (Sean John men’s sportswear and active wear). These
       three retailers appear in the Retail section of this database. In 2011, the company, which reported
       profits for the year up 24.2% to $681.4 million, signed 18 deals, 12 of them acquisitions in trading
       and six in distribution. Most of these acquisitions were in the apparel business, while some also
       included furniture, toys, cosmetics, storage organizers, etc.

       business, expanding from corn flakes into other varieties—sugar- and chocolate-coated, wheat
       fiber, extruded or inflated products, precooked bean and rice flour. International expansion began

       Profile: Maple Leaf Foods (TSE: MFI) calls itself Canada’s leading food processor, focused on
       fresh and prepared meats and meals, hog production, and bakery products. It is primarily a
       branded company, its flagship brands: Maple Leaf (meat & poultry), Schneiders (hot dogs), and
       Dempster’s (bakery items). But the company conducts private label business within different areas
       of its operation. Its independently run Shur-Gain (also in this database) provides dry extruded
       foods for dogs, cats and ferrets. In April 2004, Maple Leaf acquired Schneider Corp. from
       Smithfield Foods, Smithfield, VA. The Schneider subsidiary is one of Canada’s largest packaged
       meat manufacturers (20 processing and distribution sites in the country). The Schneider brand
       joined Maple Leaf’s two other powerful brands, Maple Leaf in meats and poultry and Dempster’s
       in bakery products. Schreider also brought in its private label business, including packaged
       processed meats, poultry and grocery products. Maple Leaf also owns 86.9% of Canada Bread (C$
       1.6 billion sales), which produces branded and private label bakery products and fresh pasta and
       sauces. Recently, Maple Leaf Foods has faced some setbacks, forcing a restructuring and
       consolidation of its business, i.e., closing plants and distribution centers. Net earnings for 2010 fell
       by 52.5% to C$ 190 million. In the spring of 2012, the company plans to construct a 282,000-
       square-foot distribution center in Wellington county to handle prepared meats in its central and
       eastern Canadian markets. The facility should be completed in 2014.

       Total Sales Volume : $12 Billion


       Sales % in EB: N/A
       Export Markets: Europe, Asia, Mexico, South America


       Profile: In 2006, Mars, Inc., McLean, VA, a global branded food manufacturer purchased Doane
       Pet Care, Brentwood, TN, excluding its European business. Doane positioned as the largest
       manufacturer of private label pet food and the second largest manufacturer of dry pet food overall
       in the US, manufacturers the majority of Walmart’s top selling private label pet food brands, Ol’
       Roy and Special Kitty, the former being number one brand of dry pet food in the US by volume.
       At that time, 71.3% of Doane’s net sales were in dry pet food, 21.3% in wet pet food and other
       items, and 7.4% in biscuits and treats, while some 43% of Doane’s total sales were generated from
       Walmart. The company produced some 200 store brands. It operated some 28 combined
       manufacturing and distribution facilities (including 6 in Europe. In June 2006, Mars, Inc. renamed
       this operation Mars Pet Care US, covering 20 plants and two distribution centers. Mars has built
       this segment of its business, acquiring Greenies, the number one pet treat supplier in the US (April
       2006) and Nutro Products, a pet specialty supplier in May 2007. Mars today is a $30 billion+
       private company (family owned), where private label plays little or no role in its other business
       segments, encompassing 135 factories in 68 countries and covering: chocolate, gum, food,
       confections, and synbioscience (global health and science). Its pet care business, however, is one
       of its fastest growing segments, operating more than 60 manufacturing sites (some 20 in the US)
       and based in Brussels, Belgium. Mars today claims to be the world’s largest pet care manufacturer.
       Mars is recognized as a house of brands: in chocolate (35+ brands), in gum (40+ brands), etc. In
       pet care, while it maintains strong brand leadership with its Pedigree, Whiskas, and Royal Canin
       brands, its private label business very likely makes it the largest private label supplier. In January
       2012, a Mars customers, Dollar General in the US, announced the addition of Butcher's Select, a
       line of premium dog food which includes natural sources to promote healthy joints and prebiotics
       to support digestive health in dogs.

       Profile: This company was formed early in 2006 when Sara Lee Corp., Chicago (listed in this

       o’ Nuts, Hills Bros., MJB, and Chase & Sanborn, and its corporate brand business plus 103
       Chock full o’Nuts coffee shops to Segafredo Zanetti S.p.A., Bologna, Italy. The new US
       operation, because of its production and national distribution capabilities and its broad product
       offering, thus becomes a leading full-service producer of roast and ground coffee for private label
       customers. The US operation in March 2010 acquired certain assets of Kaauai Coffee company in
       Kauai, HI. The parent company, the world’s largest private coffee company (and the largest
       vertically integrated coffee company) is a holding company uniting 40 companies and 11 roasting
       plants in 35 countries, representing sales of $1.2 billion in 100 countries. It oversees 20 consumer
       brands. With this acquisition, the Italian company, which is the leading Espresso producer in Italy
       (and worldwide), operates a franchised network of 600+ international coffee shops (Segafredo
       Zanetti Espresso, Puccino’s and Chock full o’ Nuts) plus through its nine roasting plants around
       the world handles 120,000 tons of coffee with 2.5 million bags of green coffee processed per year.
       This company also provides exclusive coffee blends for bars and supplies cocoa, teas, and spices
       as well. In February 2012, the company acquired Sara Lee’s gourmet foodservice coffee business,
       adding $150 million to its total revenues and thereby expanding its foodservice business.

Sales % in EB: 90+ (E)


Export Markets: ContinentalEurope, Southeast Asia


Profile: McBride, traded on the London Stock Exchange, is Europe’s leading provider of private
label household and personal care products. The company is a market leader in the UK and the
largest provider for its product categores in Western Europe. Double-digit increases in its material
costs barely allowed the company to squeeze out a “credible” 1% gain in revenues, while its
adjusted operating profits for the year fell by 42% to £ 29 million. What helped bolster business
was its push into Central and Eastern European countries, where its sales shot upward by 18% to
£ 139.7 million. McBride’s commitment there was underscored by its acquisition of a dedicated
personal care factory in Brno, the Czech Republic. In September 2010, McBride acquired 70%
interest in Dermacol as. in the Czech Republic, which specializes in skin care products, including
private label business. This product category is said to represent about one-third of Europe’s
personal care market. Subsequently, McBride has introduced some new skin treatment products.
The company also is expanding into Asian countries. It purchased Fortlab a manufacturer in
Malaysia and Newlane Cosmetics in Vietnam. Additionally, McBride is expanding its operation in
Zhongsdhan, China, to include household liquids. Also, the company has opened an office in
Melbourne, Australia, to tap into that market. New product developments continue for McBride,
one of its latest, the first 24-hour antibacterial trigger cleaners, based on the Byotrol technology.
McBride's history traces back to 1860, when Camille Simon and his wife started a laundry and
then branched out into other products. In 1978, British Petroleum purchased the company as part
of its new Consumer Products Division, but in 1993 decided to divest this business. Investors took
over. Since then, there have been a number of acquisitions, helping to position McBride as a
market leader.

       Profile: Natra (traded on the Spanish Stock Exchange under the NAT symbol), a leader in
       producing cocoa derivatives and chocolate products, as well as in functional food and wines, has
       traveled a rough road in recent years. Its proposed merger with Barry Callebaut’s chocolate
       division (Stollerck)--envisioning market leadership in the private label chocolate market in Europe
       by 2010--collapsed in 2009, when the Swiss-based chocolate firm learned of Natra’s € 8 million
       net loss in the first half of 2009. The economic climate in Europe since then, coupled with
       increasing competition, wild fluctuations in food commodity pricing, and a general decline in
       consumption of food and beverages, has produced signification losses for Natra. Its net losses in
       operating profit of € 36.6 million in 2010 and € 16.8 million in 2011. With the outlook in Europe
       bleak, Natra has turned to its export business to North America (now 42% of its sales outside
       Europe) and the Asia-Pacific market. Belgian chocolate in Asia is growing in popularity, while
       China in 2011 reportedly experienced an eight-fold increase in chocolate sales. Natra, operating
       five plants, supplies 27 of the top 30 European retailers with chocolate products; and Natra owns
       55.8% of Nutraceutical Biotechnology Corp. plus operates a winery. Its final product division
       experiences a 52% gain in 2011 turnover and is expected to rapidly grow in 2012.

       Profile: Late in the 1990s, after acquiring a number of companies, including American White
       Cross, Dayville, CT, a major producer of adhesive bandages, cotton swabs, first-aid kits and
       supplies (for hospitals and industrial safety markets), etc., NutraMax filed for Chapter 11
       reorganization in May 2000. The company emerged from that protection in February 2001, backed
       with a $40 million credit facility from its senior debtor in possession lender. NutraMax today,
       through its six manufacturing divisions (9,000 SKUs), is positioned as the largest US producer of
       store brand disposable douches, ready-to-use enemas, disposable pediatric electrolyte oral
       maintenance solutions, disposable baby bottles, cough drops, and throat lozenges. In 2007, the
       company sold its first aid division, a producer of private label adhesive bandages to Derma
       Sciences. In May 2009, NutraMax was acquird by First Boston Pharma, LLC, established by
       investors, who dropped the NutraMax name. Since then, the company has faced problems,
       divesting parts of its operation, laying off employees, and dealing with a lawsuit filed by Reckitt
       Benckiser of the UK on behalf of its Cepacol brand lozenges, being manufactured by First Boston
       Pharma. In early 2012, the company’s assets in Gloucester were sold to a competitor, BestSweet
       (also in this database).

       1985. The brand NutraSweet,, which uses aspartame as a non-nutritional sweetener, has since then
       fallen out of favor, especially when facing claims that aspartame might cause brain damage along
       with other health symptoms. The FDA and European Food Safety Authority, however, maintain
       aspartame's safety. In the 1990's, many companies, especially in Europe, chose to remove
       aspartame from their private label products. Today, this sugar-free sweetener, appearing in
       numerous products (soft drinks, yogurt, chewing gum, frozen desserts, cereals, puddings, and as a
       tabletop sweetener, is said to be used in more than 5,000 products and sold in more than 100

       Profile: Founded in 1998, Olivares de Quepu is an industry pioneer in Chile, its first producer to
       obtain its oil from one kind of olive variety. Today, the company is one of the country’s largest
       producers of 100% extra virgin olive oil. As owner of some 1,000 hectares in the Pencahue Valley
       (south of Santiago), the company manually harvests the olive fruit, processing it through fresh
       cold process of the olive juice, then bottles the final product. Its plant uses Alfa Laval machinery
       from Italy with a capacity of 1,600 to 2,000 kg/hr. Using green olives for bitter spicy flavors and
       black olives for sweet flavors, the company, as a major private label supplier, produces some
       12% of the Chilean private label market and 18% of its total olive oil market. With Olivares de
       Quepu’s output now at some 1 million kgs of product, the company looks to double that amount
       by 2012. The company’s brand, 1492, since 2004, has been recognized with numerous awards.
       Recently, a new brand, Excelentia, featuring the combination blend of selected olives and
       maximum acidity of 0.2%, was introduced.

       supplies the widest range of feminine hygiene (sanitary towels, panty liners and tampons), baby
       products (nappies and wipes) and incontinence diapers, and medical disposables available on the
       market today. In 2003, Ontex was taken over (a 78% stake) by Candover, a provider of equity for
       large European buyouts. Subsequently, however, ONTEX has faced tough competition, especially
       from Procter & Gamble and defaulted on its debt. Ontex now reports it operates 12 manufacturing
       facilities. Its products have been recognized by the attainment of ISO 9001 and ISO 9002. In July
       2010, Candover Investments agreed to sell ONTEX for € 1.2 billion to TPG Inc. and Goldman
       Sachs Group Inc.’s buyout arm. The deal, the largest private equity transaction in Belgium, was
       completed that year. In October 2011, Ontex acquired Lille Healthcare, Lille, France, a
       manufacturer of incontinence products sold to institutional healthcare customers (both Lille brand
       and private label). Its turnover was reported at € 76.8 million. This takeover for Ontex opens the
       market in Australia.

       Profile: This fourth-generation, family run business, founded in 1907 by Laurens Janssen as a tea
       company, is a leading tea supplier in Europe. Today, some 75% of its sales are in tea, 15% in
       cereals, and 10% in snack bars and sweeteners. Private label helped shape the business; but in the
       1960s, the founder’s grandson, Laurens Spethmann, created the Milford tea brand. Other brands
       followed, as OTG established itself as one of Europe’s leading tea companies. In the 1980s, a
       second division was started in the healthful nutrition area. Its brands include Veelmann for
       diabetics, Huxol for healthful nutrition, and Schneekoppe a health brand. As a second pillar of
       OTG, the Schneekoppe business was expanded into vitamins, minerals, digestive and cholesterol
       aids, plus an extensive line of dietary products for calorie-conscious and diabetic customers.
       However, in January 2007, OTG sold its Schneekoppe health food business to concentrate on
       expanding its sweeteners and bar business, as well as cereals. In 2007, the company established
       Nutrisun GmbH & Company KG as a marketing and sales arm for its sweeteners and bar business
       In Germany, the company claims a 38% market share for its branded tea line alone. Some 40% of
       its overall sales are outside of Germany.

       Profile: Traded publicly (NYST-AMEX:OFI), Overhill Farms is a value-added supplier of custom
       high-quality prepared frozen foods for branded retail, private label foodservice and airline
       customers and retailers. Its product line includes entrées, plated meals, bulk-packed meal
       components, pastas, soups, sauces, poultry, meat and fish specialties, as well as organic and
       vegetarian offerings. While its fiscal sales were down by 7.3%, they worsened in fiscal 2011,
       sales off by 13%. Net income plunged 81.6% to $1.4 million in 2011. Many factors contributed to
       these poor results: higher food and commodity costs, higher freight charges, plus the startup
       expenses related to its new Boston Market licensed frozen foods line. In November 2010, the
       company signed a five-year licensing agreement with Boston Market Corp. to produce frozen
       foods plus certain shelf-stable items under the Boston Market brand. Also, the company picked up
       new business with Target stores (also in the Retail section of this database) for its private label
       frozen meals. In May 2008, the company signed a similar five-year licensing agreement to market
       retailer Safeway’s Better Living Brands (frozen entrees under the Eating Right and O Organic
       brands).

       Profile: The Hartmann family started this company in 1818 as a cotton mill, set up by Ludwig
       Hartmann (when Napoleon was in power) and later organized by his son, Paul Hartmann. Now
       with its sights set on its 200th year (2018), Paul Hartmann is leading provider of medical and
       hygiene products in Europe, with two plants in Germany, one in France and one in Turkey. Its
       Molicare incontinence brand has achieved global status. While the company emphasizes products
       and services for professional users (hospitals, medical practices, nursing homes, and health care),
       its interest in over-the-counter (OTC) products sold in pharmacies and medical supply stores plays
       a key role in its development. In 2005, the company established CMC Consumer Medical Care
       GmbH, Sontheim, Germany (www.care-innovation.de) specializing in contract filling and private
       label. This subsidiary provides cosmetic care products (cotton wool pads and buds), medical care
       (adhesive tape/plaster strips, cut-for-length gauze dressings, wound bandages, and foot care (corn
       plasters, etc.), baby care (cotton wool pads and safety cotton wool buds), and home care
       (incontinence products). Incontinence products, in fact , now represent some 35.9% of Paul
       Hartmann’s overall revenues, while wound management takes 26.8% and infection management
       21.9%. In December 2008, the company made a stronger commitment to the incontinence
       business, acquiring Whitestone Acquisitions Corp., (formerly listed in this database), based in
       Bloomington, IN, a producer of disposable adult briefs and under pads, etc., and including private
       label business—established in 1949. Since then this operation has been integrated into Hartmann
       USA, Rock Hill, SC. Paul Hartmann’s major markets are European countries at 88.9% of sales,
       followed by America at 3.7% and Africa-Asia-Oceania at 7.4%. The company also acquired Bode
       Chemi GmbH in Germany, a disinfectant products manufacturer in 2009.


       Products/Services:Disposable adult briefs and under-pads, pads and liners, moist cotton wool pads
       & buds (cosmetic & baby), adhesive tape, plaster strips, bandages dressings, etc.

       Total Fiscal 2011 Sales Volume : $2.8 Billion (+21.5%)


       Sales % in EB: 90


       Export Markets: Mexico, Canada, Latin America, China, United Kingdom


       Profile: Perrigo (Nasdaq: PRGO) is the world’s largest manufacturer of store brand over-the-
       counter (OTC nonprescription) pharmaceutical and infant formulas. Its fiscal 2011 operating
       income soared by 49.9% to $490.2 million. From its modest beginning in 1887, as a merchant
       selling medicinal products to local grocers, Perrigo has become a leading global healthcare
       supplier that develops, manufactures and distributes OTC and prescription pharmaceuticals,
       nutritional products, active pharmaceutical ingredients (API), and consumer products. On a yearly
       basis, that amounts to some 40 billion oral solid dose and several hundred million liquid doses
       plus other product forms. The company divides its business into four major categories: (1)
       Consumer Healthcare (cough/cold/allergy/sinus, gastriointestinal, analgesics, and smoking
       cessation products), representing 60% of its sales or $1.7 billion +7%); (2) Nutritional (infant
       formula products, infant and toddler foods, vitamins, mineral and dietary supplements, and oral
       electrolyte solution products with sales at $503.3 million +94.1%), Rx Pharmaceuticals (generic
       prescription drugs for the US market with sales at $343.7 million +44.7%), and API or Active
       Pharmaceutical Ingredients at $155.7 million +11.3%). Perrigo maintains a strong store brand
       presence in each of these categories: Healthcare with 1,800 products or 8,300 SKUs with 700
       customers; Nutritionals with 400+ products or 2,500 SKUs with 150 customers; and Rx
       Pharmaceuticals with 300 generic products or 760 SKUs with 120 customers. The company’s
       strong fiscal results, including an operating income up by 45.9% to $490.2 million, derives from
       new product introductions. In consumer healthcare, for example, additions included fexofenadine
       180 mg tablets and naproxen sdium soft gels. Also, three OTC drug applications were approved by
       the FDA: loperamide liquid, minoxidi foam, and ranitidine 150 mg tablets (regular and mint).
       Perrigo has some 145 OTC drug applications pending as of the close of this fiscal year.
       Additionally, an exclusive agreement was signed in February 2011 with Aga Matrix, allowing
       Perrigo to sell blood glucose monitjors and test strips in the US as store brands. In March 2010,
       Perrigo acquired Orion Laboratories Pty Ltd. In Western Australia, a supplier of OTC store brand
       pharmaceutical products to hospitals. The next month, Perrigo closed a deal for its takeover of
       PBM Holdings, Gordonsille, VA, an infant formulas/pediatric nutritional/baby food producer,
       marketing its products in the US, Canada, Mexico, and China. PBM is listed separately in this
       database.) UPDATE: In January 2012, Perrigo agreed to acquire CanAm Care, Alpharetta, GA, a
       distributor of store brand diabetes care products (Dex4 hypoglycemia products, insulin syringes,
       pen needles, lancing, wound care, compression stockings). Perrigo followed up in August 2012 by
       agreeing to purchase Sergeant’s Pet Care Products, Inc., Omaha, NB, for $285 million cash. This
       privately owned, brand name producer of OTC companion animal healthcare products, established
       in 1868--19 years before Perrigo’s startup, generated sales of $140 million in 2011, This marks
       Perrigo’s entry into pet care products (especially flea and tick, health and well-being, and
       consumable products),while also looking to establish a store brand infrastructure.


       Products/Services:Consumer healthcare (cough/cold/allergy/sinus, gastrointestinal, analgesics,

       Profile: In December 2006, this company (established in 1946) acquired Gold Kist, Inc., Atlanta,
       GA, which was the second largest poultry producer in the US. Unfortunately, for about a year,
       Pilgrim’s Pride operated under bankruptcy protection until December 2009, when the company
       was rescued by JBS S.A. of Brazil, the world’s largest processor of fresh beef & pork products
       and now with more than $30 billion in sales. (Two years earlier, JBS acquired Swift & Co., which
       added pork to its market portfolio; the Pilgrim’s Pride takeover added chicken to JBS’s business.)
       Pilgrim’s Pride became a majority owned subsidiary of JBS USA. While Pilgrim’s Pride focuses
       primarily on the branded foodservice business, its retail sales represent some 25.5%, buttressed in
       the recent past by the integration of Gold Kist. That business at the time of takeover had an
       estimated 20% of its $1.6 billion sales in private label. In 2011, Pilgrim’s Pride suffered a net loss
       of $495.7 million due to the volatility of grain prices and other costs. JBS increased its ownership
       from 67.3% to 68%, adding financial support, while the company issued new stock. Today,
       Pilgrim’s Pride calls itself the second largest chicken producer in the world with operations in the
       US, Mexico and Puerto Rico. It processes 103 billion pounds of live chicken annually. Its
       operations include 32 feed mills and 40 hatcheries with support from 4,100 contract growers.

       niche, without sacrificing quality. Its range of products covers automotive needs, charcoal lighter
       fluids, paint thinners, as well as motor oil and antifreeze. Its export business continued to grow
       significantly. As of Jan. 2006, the company was acquired by Industrial Enterprises of America,

       for bankruptcy protections and following that two of IEAM's executives were found guilty in a
       $110 million security fraud case in 2011. Pitt Penn Oil, as a subsidiary of IEAM, has apparently
       ceased operations, as far as can be determined.

       Export Markets: N/A


       Profile: Over the past five years, Premier Foods, the United Kingdom’s largest ambient grocery
       producer and a major own brands supplier, has grown its branded business through acquisitions, as
       well as its bakery and chilled ready meal business (strong in own brands). But the economy as
       well as the cost of buying new brands has caught up with this firm, as it now tries to reduce its
       debt from £ 1.7 billion in 2008 down to £ 995 million recently, while also dealing with rising
       commodity prices. With a new chairman, Ronnie Bell, in charge, the strategy is to sell off some of
       its branded business (the meat-free brands, Quorn and Cauldron) plus its canned group in East
       Anglia, while also de-prioritizing its non-branded portfolio. In 2010, the value growth of its
       branded sales was up 4.5% (versus + 7% in 2009), while the growth pace of its retailer branded
       sales advanced by 2.6% (versus +3.3% in 2009). Total non-branded business (heavy in chilled
       ready meals, cakes and desserts) represented 34.8% of total 2010 turnover, down from 36% in
       2009. The preliminary results from 2011 are not encouraging: Profits dropped by 29%, while in
       January 2012 the company laid off 600 people or about 5% of its work force. Also, it sold off its
       Brookes Avana subsidiary to 2 Sisters (also listed in this database).

       Sales % in EB: 69


       Export Markets: Europe


       Profile:In 2006, Oaktree Capital Management, an American investment firm, purchased Richmond
       Ice Cream, a producer of impulse ice cream products in the United Kingdom. This was followed in
       July 2007 with Richmond’s merger with Roncadin GmbH, Osnabruck, Germany, third largest ice
       cream company in Europe. The result has produced Europe’s third largest ice cream manufacturer
       and its largest private label ice cream manufacturer. The company operates eight manufacturing
       facilities in the United Kingdom, Germany, France, and Poland--its biggest markets. In June 2010,
       the company through an affiliate acquired Soporo, which owns Rolland, a strong private label ice
       cream manufacturer in France--adding € 51.1 million to its revenues for the year. That helped
       boost overall revenues; but profits for the year plunged by 394.4% to a loss of € 16.5 million.
       R&R blames this on pricing pressures in Germany and a weak performance in the United
       Kingdom market. That market accounts for 33% of its revenues, followed by Germany with 30%,
       France with 21%, and Poland with 3%, the remaining 13% in other countries. The company
       produces more than 2,000 different specialty ice creams and been licensed by Movenpick of
       Switzerland to use the Movenpick brand exclusively in Tesco stores in the United Kingdom.
       Under contract, R&R also produces Nestle ice cream brands, including Fab. For 2011, acquisition
       activity picked up late in the year: in September, the takeover of Pilpa SAS in France--the leading
       own label ice cream producer in France; and in December, Durigon Gelato GbH in Germany, plus
       its Czech subsidiary. UPDATE: In July 2012, R&R acquired Eskigel S.r.L for € 77 million.
       Eskigel is the leading own label ice cream manufacturer in Italy, its 2011 sales at € 81 million,
       from ice cream sticks, lollies, cones, mini-cups, tubs, and ice cream sandwiches.

       Total Fiscal 2011 Sales: $4.4 Billion +2.6%


       Sales % in EB: 78.4


       Export Markets: Europe


       Profile: Since its formation in 1994, as a spin-off from its former parent company, Ralston Purina,
       Ralcorp Holdings (NYSE: RAH) through acquisitions has evolved from mostly a manufacturer of
       store brand or value-oriented foods into a brand name company as well. Since 2000, Ralcorp has
       acquired 20+ food companies in the US and Canada (most of them also involved in private label)
       the biggest in 2008 with the takeover of Post brand cereal business from Kraft Foods Inc., a
       merger valued at $2.6 billion. Post is the third largest branded ready-to-eat US cereal
       manufacturer. Ralcorp claims to be the largest private label manufacturer in 12 product categories,
       including: breakfast cereals, dry pasta, cookies, crackers, snack nuts, preserves, jelly, peanut
       butter, table syrup, and salad dressings. For fiscal 2011 (ending March 31), Ralcorp saw net
       earnings dip by 7.1% to $249.5 million. Some 18% of its net sales go to Walmart. Ralcorp now
       has five major divisions: (1) Branded Cereal Products--Post brand cereals with a 114-year history
       with sales of $957.9 million -8%. (2) Ralston Foods--Private brand ready-to-eat and hot cereals,
       nutrition bars, and natural/organic specialty cookies—positioned as the US leader in store brand
       breakfast cereals, offering more than 50 ready-to-eat and hot cereal varieties. (3) Snack, Sauces &
       Spreads--private brand and value brand cookies, crackers, snack nuts, candy, chips, dressings,
       syrups, peanut butter, preserves/jellies, salsas, sauces and nonalcoholic drink mixes. (J.T. Bakers
       added this year). In 2010, its Bremner Food Group (the largest private label cookie, cracker and
       snack nuts supplier in the US) and Carriage House Companies (the largest supplier of store brand
       preserves and jellies, peanut butter, table syrups, and dressings in the US, plus a leader in private
       label sauces) were merged under this division (4) Frozen Bakery--private brand and value brand
       frozen griddle products (pancakes, waffles, French toast). This division is a US leader in frozen
       griddle products and one of the largest producers of pre-baked cookies and artisan breads to the in-
       store bakery business, as well as premium frozen biscuits sold to foodservice accounts. The
       division also provides desserts and dry mix bakery items. Sepp’s Gourmet Foods has been
       merged into this division. Operation based in Downers Grove, IL. (5) Pasta--American Italian
       Pasta Co., Kansas City, MO, purchased in July 2010. AIPC is the largest producer of dry pasta in
       North America, supplying store brand and regional brand products in North America. Its strategy
       lately is to emphasize private label business in the retailer sector, while cutting back on non-
       strategic proprietary brands. Its strongest pasta brands include: Muller’s, Golden Grain,
       Pennsylvania Dutch, and Heartland. In addition, Ralcorp holds an interest of approximately 19%
       in Vail Resorts, Inc., the leading mountain resort operator in the United States. Ralcorp’s portfolio
       grew in 2010 with the takeover of four more companies, including three in Canada: North
       American Bakery Ltd. (Formerly called PL Foods Ltd.) a producer of premium private brand
       specialty crackers in North America; J.T. Bakers, a producer of private label and cobranded
       gourmet crackers in North America (sold also in Great Britain); and Sepp’s Gourmet Foods Ltd., a
       foodservice supplier and private brand supplier of frozen griddle products. In the US, Ralcorp in
       June 2010 took control of American Italian Pasta Co., Kansas City, MO, the largest producer of
       dry pasta in North America (sales about $570 million), operating three US plants and one in Italy.
       In March and May 2010, Ralcorp received and rejected two different unsolicited bids by ConAgra
       (also in this database). UPDATE: In July 2011, Ralcorp’s board agreed to a tax-free, spin-off of its
       Post Foods business to shareholders, which was completed in February 2012. After the spin-off,
       Ralcorp plans to issue up to $1.2 billion of debt with the net cash proceeds of about $1 billion
       going back to Ralcorp to be used to reduce its debt, “aggressively pursue private brand
       acquisitions” and add to its share repurchasing activity. Ralcorp's 2012 acquisitions include: In
       May, Petri Baking Products, Inc., Silver Creek, NY, a leading producer of private-brand wire-cut
       cookies; and in June, Gelit S.r.l., Cisterna di Latina, Italy, a leading producer of private-brand
       frozen ready meals in Italy. Gelit's annual sales of $45 million, Gelit manufactures and distributes
       a complete line of private-brand, frozen ready meals directly to retail and wholesale customers
       primarily located in Italy and the United States. Its products include; frozen meals representing
       authentic Italian recipes and include pasta, sauce and varieties with meat or fish, plus crepe
       entrees. UPDATE: Effective August 2012, Ralcorp began a strategic restructuring to improve
       organizational effectiveness and reduce costs. This called for consolidating its existing cereal,
       pasta, and snacks, sauces & spreads businesses into a single 'center-store' private brand food
       company. With leading positions across 20 food categories along with superior scale and
       capability in sales, marketing, research and development and operations, this strategic initiative is
       expected to generate annual pretax cost savings of approximately $26 to $31 million in fiscal
       2013.


       Products/Services: Ready-to-eat cereals, snacks, sauces, spreads, frozen bakery items, dry pasta,
       etc.

       raspberry, spiced apple, and cherry. Reed’s success also has led to the addition of about a dozen
       soft drinks (under the Virgil’s brand), and more recently, a natural energy elixir drink, sparkling
       100% juices, Flying Cauldron butterscotch cream soda, and Virgil’s Dr. Better. Reed’s
       (NASDAQ: REED) in 2010 embarked upon a private label initiative, which has since been
       expanded from four up to seven customers. Intentions now are to continue growing that business,
       as its private label offering includes 31 products.

       Profile: Started in 1950, this fourth-generation, family owned company is a leading deli salad
       producer, which also produces side dishes and prepared foods for foodservice and retail accounts.
       It operates a dozen facilities in the U.S., producing more than 1,000 products. In September 2011,
       for $18.3 million cash, Reser’s purchased a competitor, Vaughan Foods, Moore, OK, a 50-year-
       old family operated firm, producing fresh cut produce (fruits and vegetables) and value-added
       refrigerated foods, including salads, sauces, dips, soups, sauces, side dishes etc. Since 2005,
       Vaughan Foods has suffered yearly net losses, most recently a $362,000 loss in 2010, when its net
       sales dipped by 2.9% to $93.8 million. This firm perhaps suffered as a result of its important
       foodservice business, when the U.S. recession forced a cutback in eating out for many consumers.
       In November 2011, Reser’s for $69.2 million purchased another troubled manufacturer, Orval
       Kent Food Co., which had filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection a month earlier. The
       company, Chef Solutions Inc. operated Oral Kent as a subsidiary.

       Profile: To say that Sara Lee Corp. (NYSE: SLE) is going against the tide is an understatement.
       Since 2005, instead of following a pattern of growth through acquisitions, the company has been
       selling off or spinning off pieces of its business. If you trace back to 2002, Sara Lee generated
       sales of $17.6 billion, following a splurge of diversification activities tracing back into the 1970s.
       Its portfolio covered coffee, clothes, underwear, cosmetics, toiletries, air fresheners, shoe polish,
       etc. The ‘brand-letting’ began in 2005 with the sale of its US brands and private label coffee
       business to Segafredo Zanetti Coffee Group of Italy (also in this database). At the end of 2005, the
       company had sold its $1.2 billion apparel business in Europe to Sun Capital Partners for € 100
       million. Other divestments followed, including its sauces and salad dressings business (sold to
       Richelieu Foods--also in this database), its North American fresh bakery branded and private label
       business (sold to Grupo Bimbo for $959 million--except markets in western Europe, Australia and
       New Zealand). In April 2011, Sara Lee completed the divestment of its household and body care
       businesses with the sale of its global shoe care business to SC Johnson for € 245 million. This
       followed a number of previous selloffs in this area: its Indian insecticides joint venture, its air care
       business (Procter & Gamble paid € 350 million), its body care and European detergents business
       (Unilever picked them up for € 1.2 billion) and some other branded business. While under Sara
       Lee, these branded businesses were open to private label; some of the buyers, however, are strictly
       brand name manufacturers. In August 2011, Sara Lee’s North American refrigerated dough
       business (mostly private label) was transferred over to Ralcorp (also in this database) for $545
       million. In March 2012, Sara Lee executives announced “the last chapter of a fundamental
       transformation of our company.” A decade ago (2002), they said Sara Lee was a holding company
       with unrelated and decentralized operating units. In fiscal 2011, the company completed a $1.8
       billion share buyback program. Also, two acquisitions were recorded: Café Damasco (Brazil) and
       Aidells Sausage Company. For an encore, Sara Lee announced the spin off in 2012 of its total
       operation into two separate, independent companies. Its coffee and tea products will operate as a
       European beverage corporation, called D. E. Masters Blenders 1753. (The 1753 date refers to the
       debut year of Douwe Egbert of The Netherlands, now the world’s third largest coffee roaster.) Its
       US coffee and tea operation will become a subsidiary. Sara Lee also markets coffee concentrate
       machines, including Senseo coffee pods. Both Douwe Egbert and Senseo are suppliers to the
       private label business. The other company, Sara Lee MeatCo, will focus on hot dogs and other
       processed meats (Sara Lee Meat Co., handling brands like Ball Park, Jimmy Dean, Hillshire
       Farms). Based on six-month sales and Sara Lee’s full-year guidance, each new company’s
       continuing operations should gross approximately $4 billion in annual sales, according to one
       report. In June 2012, Sara Lee announced its meat-centric food products and foodservice business
       in North America will operate as Hillshire Brands (NYSE: HSH).

       Export Markets: Western Europe, Central/Eastern Europe, North America, Latin America, Asia,
       Australasia--100+ countries


       Profile: SCA is a global hygiene and paper company, producing personal care, tissue, and forest
       products plus packaging solutions. On a global basis, it is the third largest hygiene company in its
       product categories. In adult incontinence products it is number one in the world; in tissue products
       for institutional and foodservice markets, it is number two; and in consumer tissues, it is number
       three in the world. Since 76% of its sales are in Europe, its market leadership there extends
       through incontinence products (#1), diapers and feminine care (#3), both consumer &
       institutional/foodservice tissues (#1), and in packaging (#2). Two of its brands, Tena
       incontinence and Tork institutional/foodservice tissues, each command $1.5 billion in sales (SEK
       10 billion). SCA oversees some 202 manufacturing facilities: 29 personal care in 24 countries
       selling to 24 countries; 45 tissue in 18 countries, selling to 80 countries; 110 packaging facilities in
       20 countries, selling to 36 European countries; and 18 forest products facilities in countries,
       selling to Europe, Asia, North Africa and North America. In its consumer tissue business, SCA is
       considered Europe’s largest supplier for retailer brands. Forest Products include publication
       papers, pulp, timber and solid-wood products. While the company puts emphasis on its branded
       business, private label plays an important role, especially in its tissue business: toilet paper,
       kitchen rolls, facial tissues, handkerchiefs, and napkins. Recently, SCA began consolidating its
       retail brand business, including baby diapers, into its Olawa, Poland facility, starting in 2011. In
       November 2011, SCA acquired Georgia-Pacific’s European tissue business, SEK 12 billion sales,
       to be completed in mid-2012. In January 2012, SCA divested its packaging operations, excluding
       two mills in Sweden, selling the operation for SEK 15.3 billion. In March 2012, the company
       acquired Everbeauty in Taiwan, a leading Asian personal care products company, which generated
       SEK 1.6 billion in 2010 sales. This company sells mostly baby diapers and about 40% of sales in
       incontinence care products to China, Taiwan, and Southeast Asian countries. SCA, which also
       holds 18% interest in a tissue producer in China, sees this region as an exciting growth market,
       especially for hygiene products. The potential: representing up to 60% of the global growth within
       those product categories.


       Products/Services: Toilet paper, kitchen towels, handkerchiefs, napkins, facials, feminine hygiene,
       baby diapers, incontinence products

       Profile: Over the past 75 years, Schiff Nutrition has provided Schiff branded and private label
       nutritional supplements and nutrition bars (400+ SKUs) to mass market retailers in the US and
       abroad. Recently, however, its specialty area, joint care supplements, has weakened in the
       marketplace, while competition has intensified. (Its two biggest customers, Costco and Walmart
       account for 73% of total net sales.) The results show in its 2011 net income drop of 31.5% to
       $12.6 million. To counteract this trend, the company is branching out into other product areas. In
       June 2011, Schiff Nutrition for $40 million cash purchased Ganeden Biotech, Inc., a provider of
       probiotic branded products for use as a dietary supplement. More recently, in March 2012,
       Airborne, Inc., a provider of immune support dietary supplements was acquired for $150 million
       cash. Prospects for the company’s private label business in 2012 are dim, after having lost
       business in 2011.

       have shrunken reportedly to € 80 million. The country’s Ministry of Agriculture & Finance

       Profile: If only Seneca could turn back the clock to 2009, when in its 60th year, revenues shot
       upward by 18.5%. Since then, sales have declined, down by 0.5% in fiscal 2010 and now off by
       6.7%; while net earnings for fiscal 2011 plummeted by 63.5% to $17.7 million. The company
       attributes the losses to decreased selling prices and a less favorable sales mix of $59.2 million and
       lower sales volume of $26.3 million. (In fiscal 2010, sales dipped from a decrease in sales to the
       U.S. Department of Agriculture. Net earnings, however, jumped by 1.6% to $8.4 million)) Over

       Profile: Since about 81% of Solo Cups’ net sales are in foodservice--a sector badly impacted by
       the recession, the company continues to see its sales drop or remain flat. The 75-year-old firm,
       now controlled by the private equity firm, Vestar Capital Partners (33% ownership), reportedly is
       looking for a buyer. The company calls itself the leading producer of single-use products for food
       and beverages in home, quick service restaurants and other foodservice setting. Solo plans to
       concentrate on its core business and de-emphasis its business in straws and stirrers. In June 2010,
       the company decided to consolidate operations, closing three of its 15 plants. More recently, Solo
       Cup started to close down its European operations.

       Export Markets: Canada


       Profile: The Sun Products Corp. was established in 2008 when Vestar Capital Partners, the parent
       company of Huish Detergents of Salt Lake City, UT, acquired all the North American laundry
       brands of Unilever: All, Whisk, Sunlight, Surf, and Snuggle; then merged that business with Huish
       to form Sun Products. Huish, established in 1975, became the largest manufacturer of private label
       laundry detergents and fabric softeners in North America, while commanding an estimated 90%+
       of private label business in its categories. Privately held Huish’s sales were estimated at between
       $700 million to $1 billion. Also, the company was one of the largest US contract manufacturers,
       dealing with major branded companies and making its personal care products under its White Rain
       brand. Sun Products today claims to be the second largest laundry detergent manufacturer in the
       US, trailing only brand-leader Procter & Gamble. Sun continues as a leading manufacturer of
       private label laundry and dish products, plus the second largest market share in the North
       American fabric care market. Recently, the company opened a 46,000-square-foot Technology
       Center in Connecticut for product formulation and package development work. Also the company
       secured $41 million in financing in June 2010 for a 1.4 million square-foot facility in Bowling
       Green, KY, which will allow for the consolidation of nine other facilities in the area. Reportedly,
       Sun’s sales have been flat recently because of the slowdown in household growth and the
       retirement of Baby Boomers, who are becoming more frugal in this shaky economy.


       Products/Services:Laundry detergents and household cleaning products (floor and glass cleaners,
       oxygenated stain removers, pre-wash formulas, antibacterial soaps, bleach, fabric softeners).

       Profile: Suominen divides its business into three parts: Nonwovens (44% of sales), Flexible
       Packaging (30%), and Codi Wipes (26%). In Europe, the company is a market leader in nonwoven
       products (roll goods for wiping, hygiene and health care). North American also is an important
       market. Its flexible packaging business covers plastic film with flexographic printing, used in
       food, hygiene, retail packaging, security and systems products. The Suominen Codi Wipes
       operation is the third largest wet wipes producer in Europe, focused on baby and personal care
       products as well as the household cleaning category. (Codi, based in The Netherlands, was
       purchased in 2003, bringing more products to its parent company and also a commitment to
       private label--more than 90% of its sales in private label.) The year 2011 was not great for
       Suominen with customer demand down. Its losses, however, at € 9.5 million, were lower than the
       € 14.4 million loss in 2010. In November, Suominen took control of the Brazilian home and
       personal nonwoven business of Ahlstrom Corp., paying € 320 million. Those revenues in the

       Profile: This company traces its history back to 1931 as a fruit and jelly supplier. Tracking its
       checkered ownership means covering a number of company names. If you begin in September
       1998, the SKW Biosystems Inc., within its Nature Products Division, acquired the Ingredients
       Systems Division of Bunge Foods Corp., Atlanta, bringing in some $70 million of business,
       covering fruit preparations, flavors and stabilizing systems. SKW Biosystems operated as a
       subsidiary of SKW Trostberg AG, Trostberg, Germany, which also produced gelatin and
       specialties, salt products, texture systems, cultures and enzymes, as well as flavors and fruit
       preparations. SKW Trostberg merged with Degussa-Huls in 2001, producing the world’s largest
       specialty chemical company. In 2005, Degussa AG sold its flavors and fragrances business to
       Cargill Inc. and spun off its fruit ingredients business (Degussa Fruit Systems), creating the Sweet
       Ovations identity. Today as an industrial supplier of sweet ingredients, Sweet Ovations supplies
       ingredients and formulations as components to national and regional branded and private label
       products in the retail, foodservice/institutional, and school/university channels. The end products
       can include: refrigerated dairy (yogurt, cottage cheese, cream cheese), frozen desserts (ice cream,
       sherbet, sorbet, etc.), foodservice items (smoothies, malts, coffees, fountain drinks, etc.), bakery

Total 2011 Sales Volume: $2.1 Billion +12.6%


Sales % in EB: 80+ (E)


Export Markets: Canada


Profile: TreeHouse Foods (NYSE: THS) was formed in June 2005 when Dean Foods (also in this
database) spun off its Specialty Foods Division. Up through 2010, the company purchased five
companies: the private label soup and infant feeding business from DelMonte Corp.; DW
Acquisitions Ltd (San Antonio Farms), a manufacturer of Mexican sauces; the assets of E.D.
Smith Income Fund (Canada), a manufacturer of salad dressings, jams and various sauces; Sturm
Foods Inc., a manufacturer of hot cereals and powdered drink mixes, and S.T. Specialty Foods,
Inc., a manufacturer of dry dinners (macaroni & cheese) and skillet dinners. Because of the weak
and uncertain economy, the company made no acquisitions in 2011; but in March 2012, agreed to
acquire the assets of Naturally Fresh, Inc., Atlanta, GA, a $80 million producer of refrigerated
dressings, sauces, marinades, dips and specialty items (including private label business). These
products will be distributed to the TreeHouse business segments. TreeHouse today runs the gamut
in products, including: nondairy powdered creamers; private label canned soups; salad dressings
and sauces; powdered drink mixes; hot cereals; macaroni and cheese; skillet dinners; Mexican
sauces; jams and pie fillings; pickles and related products; aseptic sauces; refrigerated salad
dressings and liquid nondairy creamer. The company operates through its wholly owned
subsidiaries: Bay Valley Foods, LLC , Pittsburgh, PA;, Sturm Foods, Manawa, WI; and S.T.
Foods, Brooklyn Park, MN; and in Canada, E.D. Smith Foods, Ltd. Winona, Ontario. Bay Valley
(www.bayvalley-food.com) covers: canned soup, broth, gravy, pickles, relish, peppers, powdered
nondairy creamer, salsa, salad dressing, marinades, BBQ sauces. Sturm Foods
(www.sturmfoods.com) covers: hot cereals, oatmeal, powdered soft drink, ice tea, instant nonfat
dry milk, cocoa, cappuccino, coffee. S.T. Specialty Foods (www.stspecialtyfoods.com) covers:
macaroni & cheese, add meat skillet dinners, rice side dishes, pasta side dishes, sliced/value-added
potato dinner. E.D. Smith (www.edsmith.com) covers: jams and spreads, pie fillings, syrup,
ketchup, etc. The history for three of these companies stretches back 100+ years: Bay Valley
Foods (1862), E. D. Smith (1882), Sturm Foods (1905), S.S.Specialty Foods (1992). This mixed
bag of products has earned TreeHouse a leadership role in certain categories; largest manufacturer
of nondairy powdered creamers and pickles in the US; largest manufacturer of private label salad
dressing, powdered drink mixes, and instant hot cereals in the US and Canada. More products
means more business with Walmart: some 22.6% of TreeHouse’s total trade is allocated to this
customer. Some 71.2% of its sales are in retail, the rest divided between foodservice (distributors
and restaurants) and industrial customers (food manufacturers buying ingredients). In 2010,
TreeHouse exited from the infant feeding business. The company operates some 17 US plants and
two in Canada.

       Profile: U.S. Cotton, which started in 1982, is the leading manufacturer of cotton products in the
       Americas and the only major national manufacturer of organic cotton. The company’s national
       brands, Swisspers and Swiss Beauty cotton rounds, dominate the branded side of the category;
       each of these brands is complemented with a full line of cotton balls, squares, and swabs. Both
       brands have been the choice of many major retailers for their own exclusive labels programs. (For
       years, the company was an importer of Swisspers, owned by Flawa AG in Switzerland; but the
       latter firm sold its US facility and the brand to U.S. Cotton in 1996. Another European producer of
       swabs, Groupe Lemoine of France, sold its US facility to U.S. Cotton as well. Both European
       firms are in this database.) In January 2000, the two brands were consolidated under the Swisspers
       label to further reinforce the brand’s market dominance. In January 2008, Parkdale Mills,
       Gastonia, NC, the world leader in spun yarn (today with 25 plants located in the U.S., Colombia,
       and Mexico) acquired U.S. Cotton. At the time, it was the dominant supplier of private label
       cotton-based consumer products (swabs, cotton balls, rounds and square pads) to US and Canadian
       retail chains. Parkdale, involved in weaving, knitting, hosiery, yarns, etc., looked to expand its
       private label cotton product business. U.S. Cotton’s manufacturing facilities are located in Rio
       Rancho, NM; Charlotte, NC; and Santiago, Chile. The company’s former headquarters were in
       Rio Rancho. The company also has strategic partnerships with Flawa AG, Switzerland; Alpha
       Conseil et Participations, France; and Quimica Estrella, Argentina.

Profile: Since 1960, a predecessor company, Shuster Group, played a significant role in the
development of the private label industry. Through services including product evaluation, product
development, quality assurance, consumer testing and analytical services, the late Dr. Herbert
Shuster addressed the needs of manufacturers and retailers, importers and distributors, marketing
and service organizations. His expertise spanned a range of consumer products, including foods,
personal care products, pharmaceuticals and medical devices, cosmetics, household chemicals,
soft goods and general merchandise. Ownership passed from Dr. Shuster to Hauser, Inc. to STR
Holdings, Inc., Enfield, CT. In August 2011, the company, then called STR Quality Assurance,
was taken over by Underwriters Laboratories, Inc., Northbrook, IL, a global independent safety
science company. UL looked to complement its electronics and electrical expertise where STR
Quality Assurance can help provide a suite of quality assurance testing, inspection, auditing and
souring services focused on consumer products. The company hereafter is now identified as UL -
STR, positioned as an independent provider of quality assurance testing, audit (servicing 140
countries), and responsible sourcing services for consumer products. Testing complies with
international, national, and regional quality standards. STR-Registrar LLC, Stroudsburg, PA, a
division of the UL family of companies, Northbrook, IL, announced on Feb. 6, 2012 that it is the
first company to offer ACLASS-Accredited GMP Audits, initially covering OTC drugs, medical
device, and dietary supplement manufacturers and, by the end of the month, also including
cosmetics and non-regulated products. UPDATE: Since the quality assurance testing acquisition
of STR Holdings, UL has added three more similar acquisitions. They include: Bangladesh-based
Magnus Textile Service, German-based eco-INSTITUT early in 2012 and, in August 2012, ICQ
Global, a consumer products testing provider in Italy, active in Africa, Asia, and the US. ICQ
Global, which tests such products as toys, textiles, cosmetics, food contact material, packaging
material, paints, etc., bolsters UL's presence in Europe and Asia.


Products/Services: Quality testing services include: Product development, performance testing,
comparative evaluations, facility audits, TQM/HACCP/QA programs, label review, regulatory

       Sales % in EB: 30 (E)


       Export Markets:Global
       Profile; The Valspar Corp. (NYSE: VAL) is a leading global coatings and paints manufacturer,
       operating facilities in 25 countries. The company, founded in 1806 (America's first varnish), has
       in the past emphasized its private label business; but the trend more recently has been a transition
       more toward its own brands, Valspar, Cabot, Huarum (China), etc. The Valspar brand is now
       considered number 2 in the US paint business. This fiscal period showed strong gains in Asia plus
       an acquisition in Australia (Wattyl brand). But the company reported a 2011 net loss of $138.6
       million, versus net profits of $222.1 million in the previous year. Higher raw material costs were
       partly to blame. Its big US market (only 3.5% of that business going to export) showed only a
       6.9% increase in sales versus its foreign sales up by 45.5% for the year--the latter now represent
       48% of Valspar’s total revenues. In its two core businesses, the decorative- protective coatings
       segment has grown, with products including industrial coatings for wood, metal, and plastic;
       coatings and inks for rigid packaging (food and beverage containers, both internal and external),
       coatings for refinished vehicles, and floor coatings. The paint sector encompasses paint (exterior
       and interior), stains, primers, varnishes, and floor paints, plus enamels and aerosol and faux
       finishes.

       Export Markets: N/A


       Profile: This company began in 1867 as a coffee and spice wholesaler (Jewett & Sherman Co.) in
       Milwaukee; more products were added, such as edible oils, dressings and sauces, under the
       Holsum brand. By 1977, the company changed its name to Holsum Foods. Meantime, another
       company, Wilsey Foods in California, began as a butter and eggs distributor. In 1989, Mitsui Co.,
       Ltd., Tokyo (a diversified trading/investment/services company) acquired Wilsey Foods, allowing
       the latter access to international markets. The company added salad oils and a refining business.
       Holsum, now owned by Harvest States Cooperative (part of the CHS agricultural co-op, Inver
       Grove Heights, MN), formed a 50-50 joint venture with Wilsey in 1995 and the next year merged
       to form Ventura Foods. Powerful companies were behind Ventura Foods: CHS its 2010 sales
       reported at $8.8 billion and Mitsui with 2011 sales of $51.4 billion. From 1996 onward, there were
       company and brand name acquisitions: Van den Berg edible oil brand from Lipton/Unilever for
       the foodservice sector, Sunnyland Refining (making Ventura the leader in foodservice margarine),
       a licensing agreement to make Hidden Valley brand dressing for the foodservice market, Sona &
       Hollen for portion control capabilities, the Marie brand dressing, dips and glazes, and the Smart
       Balance brand buttery spreads for foodservice. With this expansion, Ventura Foods opened a new
       675,000 square foot facility in Ontario, CA in 2008. The end result: Ventura Foods today is the
       largest US manufacturer of margarines, spreads, and butter blends and the number one producer of
       dressings in foodservice. The company also is one of the largest private label food processors in
       the country. Ventura Foods additionally operates a processing plant for soybean oils. The
       company oversees 11 production and distribution facilities, where foodservice accounts represent
       60% of sales, the balance in retail and contract packing. Ventura Foods now specializes in edible
       oils, shortenings, dressings, margarine spreads, sauces and flavor bases. One of its largest
       customers: Sysco foodservice (23% of sales)--listed in the Retailer section of this database.

       processed. The range also can be custom-formulated. The company also has supplied some of the
       newer, unique products appearing under President’s Choice, such as Ancient Greens and Seven
       Reasons—made from non-hybrid strains of wheat that trace back to grains grown 4,000 years ago.
       The company also handles the LifeStream Natural Foods brand.

       Export Markets: 50+ countries


       Profile: Viterra is a global leader in agri-business (seed, fertilizer, crop protection products,
       equipment, and wool in Australia; and in food ingredients, including grain handling and marketing
       and processing (oats, wheat, custom-coated grains, and canola oil). The company is positioned as
       a supplier of nutritional food, grains, oilseeds, and specialty ingredients to the export market and
       to global food companies. Some 72% of its sales come from grain handling & marketing, while
       agriproducts represent 20.3%, and processing 13.6%. In the latter area, Viterra in May 2010,
       acquired Dakota Growers Pasta Company in the US, an important private label pasta producer
       with sales estimated at $70 million+. This added durum processing to Viterra’ processing
       portfolio, while picking up 254,000 tons of pasta manufacturing capacity. Viterra also acquired
       21st Century Grain that year. Viterra (Toronto Stock Exchange: TSX) is largest industrial oat
       processor in the world, supplying oats to cereal and breakfast bar brands. Recently, the company
       formed a relation with Gruppo Euricom to be the exclusive distributor of its Italian pasta and rice
       products in the US and Canada—sold in the private label retail and foodservice markets. This
       operation dovetails into Dakota Growers Pasta Company. In March 2012, Viterra Inc. agreed to be
       acquired by Glencore International plc, Baar, Switzerland, in a deal that values Viterra’s equity at
       about C$6.1 billion on a fully diluted basis. Glencore established its agribusiness in Australia in
       2003. (Viterra purchased the ABB business in Australia in 2010.)

       Profile: As the Greek economic crisis deepened near the end of 2009, the Government to stay
       afloat finally sought bailout loans from the European Union. Its effect has been significant for
       Vivartia SA. Incorporated in September 2006, following the merger of Delta Dairy SA, Chipita
       SA, Goody’s SA, General Frozen Foods SA, and Barba Stathis, this company on June 30, 2010
       voted to spin off its operations into independent subsidiaries. The following month, Vivartia
       disposed of its Baking & Confectionary segment for € 730 million using some € 327 million of the
       proceeds to pay off debt. Chipita America is now listed separately in this database. Then in
       September 2010, the company purchased a 43% stake in the dairy company, Megal SA, for € 57
       million and five months later (February 2011) took control of Megal completely. The de-merger of
       its sectors include: production and trade in dairy products and drinks (Delta S.A.), in bakery and
       confectionery products (Chipita S.A.) and in frozen foods (Barba Stathis S.A.), plus provision of
       catering services (including two foodservice chains-- 185 Goody’s restaurants and 74 Flocafé
       units). For 2010, the Group suffered an 8.4% drop in gross profits to € 305.4 million. Delta sales
       were down by 5.3%; Goody’s sales were off 12%; Flocafé sales dipped by 5%; and the Barba-
       Stathis frozen food business slipped by 2.1% in sales.

       Profile: Webster Industries, an industry pioneer in its field and an early supporter of the Private

       Industries (NASDAQ: AEPI), a manufacturer of plastic packaging for consumers (including film
       food wraps), industrial and agricultural markets (2010 sales of $800.6 million +7.5%). Webster

       kitchen bags (1982) as well as a pioneer of recycled trash bags (1972). In 2007, its 50th
       anniversary, the company introduced high recycled plastic content bag liners (60%), taking an
       industry leadership position by also being the first to secure independent third party certification
       on this content. AEP’s gross profits in 2010 dipped by 31.4% to $110.1 million; the company
       looks to strengthen and diversify its product offering with the Webster takeover.

       Profile: The history of this company evolved from entrepreneurial ownership, to a brand-name
       takeover, to a cooperative. In 1943, Louis H. Rich started The Rock Island Produce Company. Its
       business became a chicken slaughterhouse and by 1949 entered turkey processing as well, under
       the new name, Louis Rich Foods. Its success led to a takeover in 1979 by Oscar Mayer (a Philip
       Morris division) in 1979. Late in 1996, the company closed its West Liberty, IA, plant, which was
       then acquired by 47 Iowa turkey growers, who had just formed a cooperative, called West Liberty
       Foods. Expansion for the company since then has resulted in four processing facilities, including
       one out of state in Tremonton, Utah. The company today is a copacker, private label manufacturer,
       and foodservice supplier, producing sliced deli meats and fully cooked IQF products. Turkey
       represents about 40% of its business, the rest including pork, chicken, beef and sliced meat
       products. In May 2011, the company introduced ‘Peel & Reseal’ packaging for its private label
       customers—a package that uses 33.7% less plastic than typical retail tray packaging or tubs.

       Profile: Wise Foods celebrates its 90th anniversary in 2012. Its roots trace back to 1921, when
       Earl Wise Sr., a grocer, being overstocked with potatoes, cut them up into chips and prepared them
       as snacks, sold in brown paper bags. This led to a production plant and the emergence of Wise
       Potato Chip Company. As its product selection of snacks grew, the company decided in 1969 to
       rename itself Wise Foods. Its ownership changed in 1964, taken over by Borden Inc., which in
       turn was acquired by KKR & Co in 1994. By 2000, Palladium Equity Partners acquired Wise
       Foods reportedly for $97 million. Today, the company commands the number two or three market
       share in its category in 12 East Coast states. The company manufactures private label salty snacks
       for many large retail customers. Wise operates four strategically located production facilities in the
       eastern US. Its branded range includes: Wise potato chips, popcorn, and corn chips; Cheez
