GREENWICH, Conn. - A private equity fund has purchased the Juicy Juice brand from Nestle USA.

This is Brynwood Partners' third acquisition from Nestle USA in the past 14 months, with others including Joseph's Gourmet Pasta Co. Pearson Candy Co., a portfolio company of Brynwood Partners VI, bought the Bit-O-Honey brand from Nestle USA last year.
