Daniel J. Gomez, Director and lead of BGL’s Food & Beverage sector, was quoted in Agri Investor regarding private equity firms being among the most active investors in the food distribution market.
Gomez told Agri Investor that, “private equity firms that have historically avoided investments in food companies are beginning to ‘dip their toes’ into the market.”
“From their perspective, the easiest way to do that is through distribution,” said Gomez. “That exposes them to the end market without having to take a risk in buying a brand or buying a restaurant which they may not have prior experience in.”
