Anyone have any insight in to the rumors of Core buying Waypoint or vice/versa?  I have heard this mentioned on the Sales Meeting Floors over the past year or two.  AGAIN just recently....

I can totally see that coming and soon.  I see Tyson going direct and Waypoint/Core merging.  The recent announcement of Pilgrims going with Core told me everything I need to know.  Between the two companies they represent a major client for every part of the plate.  If I were one of their mid - smaller manufacturers, I would be nervous.  They don't want to deal with "ankle biter" clients.

We've been hearing rumors about it for a while now, too. But there was something posted on LinkedIn not long ago about Core dismissing these rumors. I'll see if I can find the source...

I also keep hearing about McCain going broker / direct

Core did put out a memo squashing it.  Believe me, they only put information in writing that they WANT everyone to know.  They weren't ready for it back then.  Right now McCain is represented by both Key Impact and Core nationally.  I haven't heard about them going direct, but, seeing what Lamb Weston just did, who knows.

Actually, John Goodman from Core DID put out a memo on Linkedin several months back claiming the merger was all here-say and rumor.
Sounds like they are building up their portfolio to sell...

Waypoint, Acosta, Core, Key. They are all only good for the Manufactures that are disappearing from them. They are going to be begging the smaller lines that they could not take care of, or ignored, to come back. Great opportunities for New Brokers to start opening up. People that actually want to sell have a great opportunity right now.
