Acosta Sales & Marketing, a full-service sales and marketing agency in the consumer packaged goods industry, has expanded into the natural food segment.

The Jacksonville,Fla.-based agency announced last Thursday that it has acquired Higgins Cohn Brand Management, the largest natural foods sales agency in Canada.

Acosta did not reveal how much they were paying for Higgins Cohn, whose head office is located in Woodbridge, Ont. Their cllients include Silver Hills, Zevia and Enjoy Life.

“Higgins Cohn is the leading natural foods agency in Canada representing many of the top natural product brands,” said Robert Hill, President & CEO of Acosta. “Higgins Cohn’s extensive experience, strong relationships and service excellence will enable us to expand our reach in the Natural/Specialty Sales channel.”

Acosta is the self proclaimed sales and marketing powerhouse behind many trusted brands shoppers see in stores. The company has existed for over 85 years, with services throughout the U.S. and Canada.

The acquisition is expected to close in March.
