Lakeview Farms announced its acquisition of Tribe Mediterranean Foods. Lakeview Farms is a marketer and manufacturer of refrigerated desserts, dips, seafood salads and spreads primarily sold on the fast-growing perimeter of retail outlets including dairy, deli and seafood departments across the United States.

Based in Taunton, Mass., Tribe Mediterranean is a manufacturer of preservative-free prepared hummus products. The company has a strong heritage of producing high-quality hummus in innovative flavors. Tribe's highly recognized traditional savory products are further complemented by its recent launch of a new sweet hummus platform. Tribe hummus is plant-based, kosher-certified, vegan-friendly, and contains no GMO ingredients, no artificial preservatives, no cholesterol, no hydrogenated oils or high-fructose corn syrup.

The addition of Tribe to the Lakeview family of brands allows Lakeview to further penetrate the perimeter of the store by entering the $800 million hummus category with an established national brand. The combined portfolio will allow the business to offer a broader range of products and a higher level of service to its customers.

Tribe employs approximately 85 full-time, part-time and seasonal employees.
