Colorado Premium Foods, a premier processor of beef products in the United States, today announced that it has acquired all of the assets and stock of Buedel Fine Meats & Provisions and Vlcek Fine Meats, Inc., both based in Bridgeview, Illinois. 

Founded in 1907, Buedel Fine Meats & Provisions is a leading distributor of premium quality meats to the nation's finest restaurants, hotels, casinos and country clubs.  Founded in 1927, Vlcek Fine Meats is a third-generation purveyor of fine meats and poultry, also servicing white tablecloth restaurants and hotels and a co-packer of beef products for high end purveyors both nationally and internationally.
