MINNETONKA, Minn. (July 1, 2020) ― Michael Foods, a subsidiary of Post Holdings and the largest processor of value-added eggs in the United States, today announced the acquisition of Henningsen Foods.

Henningsen Foods is a manufacturer of value-added egg, meat and poultry products founded in 1889, and most recently was owned by Kewpie Corporation. Products made by Henningsen Foods include dehydrated eggs and meats used in sports nutrition, sauces and dressings, noodles and pet foods, along with other food ingredients.

“The addition of Henningsen Foods’ capabilities and product portfolio will directly support the continued growth of our key food ingredient customers,” said Mark Westphal, President of Michael Foods. “Their dehydrated poultry, beef and pork products also add a nice complement that will provide additional solutions for current customers.”
