Reily Foods Company, a Los Angeles-based coffee and tea manufacturer, has acquired New England Tea & Coffee Company for an undisclosed amount.

The acquisition will allow Reily Foods to expand its roasting capacity and packaging capabilities.

The acquisition will not affect the New England Tea & Coffee business’ production and distribution activities, which would operate under the same brand name, but as a subsidiary of Reily Foods.

Reily Foods president and CEO David Darragh said New England Coffee and Reily Foods are both multi-generation, family-owned companies with many shared values.

"Both companies are passionate about producing great coffee, providing superior customer service and consumer value, and opportunities for its employees," Darragh added.

"New England Coffee enjoys a strong, well-earned reputation in the industry. We look forward to working with all of the New England Coffee Company employees to achieve strong growth and expanded opportunities."

New England Coffee has five shareholders including James Kaloyanides, John Kaloyanides, Michael Kaloyanides, Stephen Kaloyanides and James Dostou.

Except Kaloyanides, who will continue to represent the company’s coffee interests to the National Coffee Association, the rest of the shareholders will leave the company.

Kaloyanides said they are confident that this transaction positions New England Coffee, their employees and customers exceptionally well for the future.

Reily Foods’ portfolio of brands include Luzianne Tea, Luzianne Coffee, French Market Coffee, CDM Coffee, JFG Coffee, Blue Plate Mayonnaise, JFG Mayonnaise, Wick Fowler’s 2-Alarm and Carroll Shelby’s Chili Kits, La Martinique Salad Dressings, Tiger Sauce, Swans Down Cake Flour and No Pudge fat free brownie mixes.
