Bloomfield-based Grote & Weigel, which recently shut down, will resume production on Monday, according to Rachael’s food corporation, which has acquired the assets of the meat company.

Rachael’s, a division of J. Polep Distribution Services of Chicopee, Massachusetts, announced Wednesday that it’s purchased Grote & Weigel’s assets from the bank.

Grote & Weigel, which was founded in 1890, has produced deli meats, hot dogs, and sausages.

Company officials say a majority of existing Grote & Weigel employees will be retained, including former owner Michael Greiner, who will continue on as general manager.
