Newsline: DFA’s Growing Clout Concerns Justice Department
The Globe also claims that DFA’s President and CEO Gary Hanman suggested the merger between Hood and NDH after Hood’s CEO John Kaneb approached Hanman with an idea about NDH’s Crowley Food’s building some synergies with Hood. Hood had been interested in acquiring Crowley before it was purchased by NDH in 2001.
According to Hood Spokeswoman Lynne Bohan, the merger should be completed near the end of this quarter and the merged company will have offices in both Chelsea and Dallas. The Globe reports that the company name will be changed to National Dairy, but the Hood brand name will be retained.
