Newly Weds Foods said it purchased Continental Mills’ industrial food-coating business. The deal includes a Pendleton, Ore., factory and assets that manufacture starch- and flour-based coatings and batters for potato and poultry applications, as well as other protein and vegetable-type substrates. “Beyond just the immediate addition to sales volume, we see long-term benefits arising from inherent values in proprietary products, new product technologies, access to key areas of distribution, an expanded customer base and additional manufacturing capacity,” said Newly Weds Foods’ president, Charles Angell. Newly Weds also supplies food coatings, seasonings and functional ingredients. – Newly Weds Foods Inc.,
