KeHE Distributors, Naperville, Ill., said Friday it has agreed to acquire Nature’s Best, a Brea, Calif.-based distributor of health and natural food products.

Completion of the acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions, KeHE said.

KeHE provides natural, organic, specialty and gourmet products to retailers across North America. Nature’s Best is one of the industry’s largest privately owned wholesalers and distributors of health and natural food products in the U.S.

KeHE said in June it has reached an agreement with Safeway to become the specialty and natural food supplier for the chain’s Texas stores: 63 Tom Thumbs in the Dallas-Fort Worth area and 44 Randalls in the Houston and Austin markets.
