Dearborn, Mich.-based Dearborn Sausage Co., Inc., a national supplier of fresh sausages, premium beef jerky, snack sausages, and hams, and Boulder, Colo.-based THANASI Foods LLC, a national supplier of branded snack foods, have formed Macomb Smoked Meats LLC as a joint venture to purchase and manage the American Foods Company Inc. beef jerky and smoked sausage production facility in Macomb, Mich.

“The strategic fit of Macomb Smoked Meats brings together years of experience in meat snack manufacturing and beef jerky category focus that will benefit THANASI Foods and Dearborn Sausage Co. tremendously,” said Justin Havlick, CEO and president of THANASI Foods. “Given THANASI’s current growth in the category, THANASI can now proudly claim direct manufacturing ownership of many of its foods, while continuing to provide the consumer with delicious, nationally co-branded, and high-quality alternatives to other competitive jerky products on the shelf.”
