C.H. Robinson Worldwide, a produce sourcing and non-asset based third party logistics company, has purchased Rosemont Farms Corp., a produce marketing company, and Quality Logistics, a non-asset based logistics company.


Rosemont provides produce and logistics solutions to retail and food service customers. Quality Logistics primarily focuses on refrigerated and less-than-truckload transportation. Both are headquartered in Boca Raton, Fla., and include approximately 100 employees combined. Both companies were established in 1999 by Andrew Schwartz, Frank Segui, and Don Brodie. Schwartz and Segui will continue with the company in similar management roles.

"The Rosemont and Quality Logistics acquisition continues C.H. Robinson's long track record of adapting to the needs of the marketplace by developing new approaches to the produce supply chain," said Jim Lemke, C.H. Robinson senior vice president of sourcing. "Both companies' experienced teams will be a driving force as we cultivate stronger and more active grower marketing programs."

"We have worked with Robinson for many years and look forward to bundling our collective resources and capabilities," said Schwartz. "Together, we will be able to offer the high quality produce and service that has built both companies to their current levels."

C.H. Robinson did not disclose the terms of the acquisition.
