Creation Gardens Acquires Produce Distributor Lasita & Sons

Creation Gardens Inc. has acquired Cincinnati-based produce distributor Lasita & Sons Produce. Terms for the deal were not disclosed.

Established nearly 100 years ago, Lasita & Sons Produce services foodservice customers such as fine-dining restaurants, quick serves and healthcare facilities. The company operates out of an Ohio distribution center.

“The acquisition of Lasita & Sons Produce will grow our footprint to serve southern and central Ohio—including Dayton and Columbus,” Ron Turnier, CEO of Creation Gardens, said in a statement. “We will gain over 500 customers that can benefit from our unique services that are applied to six challenging product lines, including butchered meats.”

Creation Gardens is a foodservice distributor based in Louisville.
