Longleaf Partners Small-Cap Fund made the following comment about Westrock Coffee Company, LLC (NASDAQ:WEST) in its Q4 2022 investor letter:

Westrock Coffee Company, LLC (NASDAQ:WEST) – Westrock Coffee, which is the “brand behind the brand” producing and distributing coffee, tea and extracts for larger entities, was another top performer this year. We first bought this company in the form of a SPAC called Riverview Acquisition Corp. Unlike the overall SPAC market, which was in full meltdown this year, the market properly differentiated profitable Westrock from unprofitable concept company insanity. We have successfully partnered at prior investments with both Chairman Brad Martin and Founder and CEO Scott Ford, and we expect both to continue their strong track records of value creation at Westrock.”
