Swiss Chalet Fine Foods is going to become a division of the Atalanta Corporation. The move, according to a recent press release, will further strengthen Swiss Chalet’s position as a top specialty ingredients supplier in the foodservice industry. Atalanta plans to enhance its reach across various channels, such as in national chain restaurants, retail, and manufacturing.
“The combination of Swiss Chalet Fine Foods and Atalanta will better enable us to be a part of more food experiences,” said Tom Gellert, President of Atalanta. “We will leverage the strengths of both of our organizations—our people and our products—to achieve greater success.”
Swiss Chalet Fine Foods was founded by Hans and Claire Baumann in 1968 with the goal of bringing fine European and imported ingredients to the foodservice industry. Throughout its history, Swiss Chalet has been known to bring quality ingredients and specialty foods to chefs nationwide, and is a key ally to foodservice operators and in-store bakeries to assist on upgrading their product offerings.
Swiss Chalet has been a part of the Gellert Global Group—a third-generation family-owned business consisting of many leading North American food importing companies—since 2007. Atalanta is also a member.
