DALLAS, TX – Living Earth has acquired the operating assets of Nature’s Best Organics of Tennessee, a processor of organic material and distributor of natural landscape products. Operating in Tennessee since 2002, Nature’s Best has three locations in the greater Knoxville area, where it is the market leader, and has expanded to serve the Nashville area with three additional locations. All six Tennessee sites will operate under the Living Earth brand.
This is the first acquisition for Living Earth, which is establishing a national platform of businesses processing organic material into quality landscaping products. “We are proud to expand our footprint to Tennessee, and we are looking forward to accelerating our growth while pursuing additional acquisitions in the near term as we build a national platform,” said Mark Rose, President and CEO of Living Earth and a 36-year veteran of the industry.
“Nature’s Best is a terrific fit with Living Earth’s business model and expertise and a great addition to our platform. Nature’s Best has a successful history and a talented team that shares Living Earth’s desire to make a positive environmental impact, while providing quality products, great service and the best value to its customers. We welcome them all to the Living Earth family,” said Rose.
Tennessee customers will not see any interruption of operating hours, services or product availability. “We will continue to offer the same level of service and the same quality of products that Nature’s Best customers have come to expect, and we look forward to enhancing those offerings in the coming months to better serve our customers,” said Rose.
