In August 2018, Indiana Packers Corporation (IPC), producer of Indiana Kitchen premium pork products announced the acquisition of Specialty Foods Group, LLC (SFG) based in Owensboro, Kentucky for a purchase-price between $ 25-27 million. The acquisition is expected to strengthen the Indiana Packers Corporation's (IPC) growth in manufacturing, marketing, sales, and raw material utilization capabilities. Specialty Foods Group LLC is a manufacturer and distributor of private-labelled and premium branded meat products in the USA.

The high cost of specialty food is likely to hinder the growth of the specialty foods market during the period. Specialty foods are made from high-quality ingredients such as gluten-free, non-GMO, and ingredients rich in vitamins and minerals, thus include a higher cost of raw materials. According to specialty foods association, the high cost of ingredients, certifications, and production is increasing the prices of specialty foods making it unaffordable for the large group of the populace.

Moreover, according to the research from the NDP Group in 2019, millennials, gen X, and baby boomers are expected to eat more meals at home. Thus, growth in at-home cooking activities of millennials combined with preferences for healthy foods is anticipated to boost the revenue for specialty foods market over the forthcoming years.
