December 10, 2017
Deep River Snacks, a US company manufacturing premium better-for-you snacks in Connecticut, is acquired by Arca Continental, the second largest Coca-Cola bottler in Latin America and parent company of the snack companies Wise Snacks, Bokados and Inalecsa.

With nationwide distribution and sales of approximately USD$45 million per year, Deep River Snacks is known for its colorful line of kettle cooked potato chips, and HONCHOS™ organic seasoned tortilla chips.

All of its products have non-GMO ingredients, are certified gluten-free, cooked exclusively in sunflower oil, and are Kosher and nut-free.

Manuel L. Barragan Morales, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Arca Continental:

“Consistent with Arca Continental’s profitable growth and long-term vision we continue to expand our investment in Complementary Businesses in the United States, hand in hand with a company that shares our core values and sense of social responsibility.”
Francisco Garza Egloff, CEO of Arca Continental:

“This acquisition broadens the process of diversification and complementarity of the snacks portfolio for the US consumer with innovative products and in differentiated segments, allowing us to better serve our customers and enhance the development of our brands.”
Deep River Snacks rounds out Arca Continental’s portfolio to capture both the conventional and growing better-for-you segment within the snack category, while partnering with a company whose mission is well aligned with Arca Continental’s Sustainability and Social Responsibility Strategy.

This acquisition makes Arca Continental a more significant player in the salty snacks industry in the United States, now manufacturing, distributing and selling brands like Wise®, Cheez Doodles®, Deep River Snacks® and HONCHOS™.
