George’s Inc of Springdale will acquire Ozark Mountain Poultry Inc. of Rogers for an undisclosed amount.
Financial terms of the acquisition were not disclosed in a news release issued Wednesday (Sept. 5) by OMP. It is expected to close in the fourth quarter of 2018.
I have known Gary George and the George family for 35 years, he is a person for whom I have tremendous admiration and respect. I think the acquisition of OMP will equally benefit George’s and the team members of OMP because our cultures fit. Additionally, it will enhance our position in the marketplace.

This acquisition further diversifies our portfolio, allowing us to grow in the retail segment with a trusted brand.
The ability to provide today’s consumer with affordable antibiotic free and non-GMO poultry products is very important to our overall strategy.
Charles George, co-chief executive of George’s
