Toronto, Canada, June 1, 2021 — In keeping with their core strengths of top quality product and first rate service, Rouge River Farms BB #:164770 is thrilled to announce the acquisition of all assets and shares of Magnolia Packing BB #:162549, finalizing today, June 1.

Magnolia, with its home base in Americus, Georgia, is known across the industry as a top quality green bean grower and packer with operations in Florida and Georgia.

Following the agreement with Rouge River Farms, Magnolia will continue to operate with their current management and sales staff to ensure a smooth transition to the new ownership.

Outgoing President Taylor Neighbors will remain a vital part of the company as a full time advisor.

“This is such an exciting opportunity”, said Rouge River Farms President, Robert Reesor who will assume the role of President of Magnolia.

“Not only does the Magnolia green bean packing operation already complement our corn program at Rouge River, but this year we’ll be able to offer a year round green bean program upon opening our new packinghouse in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley”.

Outgoing President Neighbors added, “With 5,000 acres of green beans planted, the new packinghouse will be an important new asset. Combined with the reach of Rouge River and the many talents of their team, big things are on the horizon for Magnolia Packing.”

Produce buyers in the United States and Canada are encouraged to contact Rouge River to hear more about the current season and of the future plans for a full assortment of loose, packaged and value added Magnolia green beans.
