Conagra Brands to acquire Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP
Conagra Brands has struck a deal to acquire ready-to-eat popcorn maker Angie's Artisan Treats, the maker of Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP, from private equity firm TPG Growth for an undisclosed sum.

The deal is expected to close by the end of the calendar year, said Conagra CEO Sean Connolly, who said the deal represented “another important step in our ongoing plan to modernize our portfolio and accelerate growth.”

He added: "The Angie's BOOMCHICKAPOP business is a leader in the fast-growing, better-for-you snacking segment. It will be a great complement to our growing snack business​."

Founded by husband and wife entrepreneurs Dan and Angie Bastian in 2001, Angie’s BOOMCHICKAPOP has a presence in the US Canada, South Korea, Peru, the Caribbean and Mexico.

"I love Conagra's vision of being the most-energized, highest-impact culture in food. We see Conagra as a perfect fit for the Angie's BOOMCHICKAPOP brand​," said Angie Bastian.

Asked about what the deal would mean for staffing and production at Angie's, a Conagra spokesman said: "At this point we have signed an agreement but the deal needs to be finalized before we can discuss any specifics."
