which it has any obligation to contribute) or to which, to the
Company's knowledge, it may have actual or potential liability
under Title IV of ERISA for a complete or partial withdrawal from
a multi-employer plan is the United Food & Commercial Workers
International Union-Industry Pension Fund (the "Multi-Employer
Plan").

     (d)  With respect to the Company's 401(k) plan, neither the

prohibited transactions imposed by ERISA or the Code, or to any
other liability under ERISA or the Code.  All reports, statements,
returns and other information required to be furnished or filed
with respect to said 401(k) have been furnished or filed in
accordance with ERISA and the Code, and they are true, correct and
complete in all material respects.  The Company has no knowledge of
any threatened or pending claim against the Company or its
fiduciaries by any participant, beneficiary or governmental agency.

be obtained by the Company in connection with the transactions
contemplated by this Agreement.

health and safety or the environment.

Occupational Safety & Health Act of 1970, as amended, including

would have a material adverse effect on the Subject Business or
Purchased Assets.

     (c)  Company has filed all federal, state and local income tax
returns, and Company has filed all excise or franchise tax returns,
real estate and personal property tax returns, sales and use tax
returns, and other tax returns (including returns with respect to
withholding and unemployment tax) required to be filed by it, and
has paid all taxes owing by it, including interest and penalties
thereon, except taxes which have not yet accrued or otherwise
become due for which adequate provision has been made.  Neither the
Internal Revenue Service nor any other taxing authority is now
asserting, or, to the knowledge of the Company or any stockholder

                                   9


thereof, threatening to assert against Company any deficiency or
claim for additional taxes or interest thereon or penalties.

Company's knowledge, threatened against the Company with respect to
products sold or distributed by the Company.  

     4.14 Permits/Approvals.  Company currently possesses such
certificates, authorities or permits issued by the appropriate
local, state or federal regulatory agencies or bodies as are
necessary to conduct the Subject Business, the failure of which to
have would create a material adverse impact on the Subject
Business.  All of such certificates, authorities and permits are
listed on Schedule 1.1(c), and the Company has not received any
notice of proceedings relating to the revocation or modification of
any such certificate, authority or permit.

     4.15 Certain Environmental Matters.  Except as set forth on
Schedule 4.15, the Company is operating and has operated the
Subject Business in material compliance with all applicable local,
state and federal environmental laws, regulations and ordinances,
including, but not limited to, the Comprehensive Environmental
Response, Compensation, and Liability Act, 42 U.S.C. Sections 9601
et seq. ("CERCLA"), the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act, 42
U.S.C. Sections 6901 et seq., the Clean Water Act, 33 U.S.C.
Sections 1251 et seq., and the environmental laws and regulations
of the State of Georgia, as each such statute or regulation has
been amended from time to time ("Environmental Laws and
Regulations").  The Company has not knowingly accepted for storage
and, to the best of its knowledge, does not store any hazardous
substance or hazardous material at the property and buildings at
which the Subject Business is conducted (the "Property") in
violation of the Environmental Laws.  The Company has never
knowingly caused the release of any amount of any hazardous
substance or hazardous material to the environment, which release
would constitute a violation of any Environmental Laws and
Regulations.  The Company does not own, lease, rent or otherwise
utilize any underground storage tanks, and, to the best of the
Company's knowledge, there are no waste tanks, containers,
cylinders, drums or cans buried, stored or deposited in or at the
Subject Business in violation of the Environmental Laws and
Regulations.  To the best of Company's knowledge, the property and
buildings from which the Subject Business is conducted does not
contain (i) any asbestos, (ii) any polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB)
substances, or (iii) any waste petroleum products.  For purposes of
this Section 4.15, "hazardous substance", "release" and
"environment" shall have the same meanings as those terms are
defined by Section 101 of CERCLA, 42 U.S.C. Section 9601, and
"hazardous material" shall have the same meaning as that term is
defined by

                                   10


Environmental Laws and Regulations.

     4.16 Transactions with Interested Persons.  Neither Company
nor any of its stockholders own, directly or indirectly, on an
individual or joint basis, any material interest in any customer,
competitor or supplier of the Subject Business, or any organization
which has a material contract or arrangement with the Subject
Business, except for the Company's interest in Fieldstone Meats of
Alabama, Inc.

     4.17 Financial Matters.

     (a)  The value of assets of Company at a fair valuation in the
aggregate will, immediately following the Closing, and after giving
effect to all of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement,
exceed the amount of its then existing debts and other liabilities
(including contingent liabilities).

     (b)  The assets of Company will not, immediately following
Closing, and after giving effect to all of the transactions
contemplated by this Agreement, constitute unreasonably small
capital to carry out its business as conducted or as proposed to be
conducted.

     (c)  Company will receive reasonably equivalent value in
exchange for the Purchased Assets (including Buyer's assumption of
the Assumed Liabilities), and Company does not intend to, does not
believe it will, nor should it reasonably believe it will incur
debts beyond its ability to pay such debts as they mature (taking
into account the timing and amounts of cash to be received by Buyer
and amounts to be payable or in respect of then existing debts of
the Buyer).

     4.18 Receivables.  To the Company's knowledge, the Receivables
represent bona fide undisputed accounts now owed to the Company for
products delivered in accordance with purchase orders or
specifications of customers of the Company, and, to the Company's
knowledge, no such account is subject to a defense, counterclaim or
offset, or an agreement for reduction or discount, except to the
extent of an Assumed Liability.  To the Company's knowledge, no
payment on any of the Receivables is contingent upon performance of
any other obligation of the Company, or any other person or entity.

     5.   Representations and Warranties of Buyer.  The Buyer
represents, warrants and agrees as follows:

     5.1  Corporate.

     (a)  Buyer is a corporation organized, validly existing and in
good standing under the laws of Florida, and has all requisite
power and authority to own and operate its business and property as
and where it is now being conducted.

     (b)  The execution, delivery and performance of this Agreement
and the consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby have
been duly authorized by the Board of Directors of Buyer and no
other corporate action by Buyer is necessary to authorize such
actions.

     (c)  This Agreement is, and the agreements, instruments and
documents to be executed by Buyer pursuant hereto or in connection
herewith will be when executed by it, the valid and legally binding
obligations of Buyer enforceable in accordance with their
respective terms, except to the extent limited by bankruptcy,
insolvency, reorganization, moratorium or similar laws affecting
creditors' rights generally or by general equitable principles.

                                   12


     5.2  Financial.

     (a)  Attached hereto as Schedule 5.2(a) are copies of the
audited financial statements of the Buyer as of March 30, 1996, and
for the year then ended (the "Buyer Year-End Financials").  These
financial statements present fairly the assets and liabilities of
the Buyer in accordance with generally accepted accounting
principles, consistently applied.  There is no material obligation,
claim or liability which is not properly reflected or reserved in
the Buyer Year-End Financials.

     (b)  Attached hereto as Schedule 5.2(b) are copies of the
internal financial statements of the Buyer as of December 27, 1996
(the "Buyer Current Financial Statements").  Buyer Current
Financial Statements present fairly the assets and liabilities of
the Buyer in accordance with generally accepted accounting
principles, consistently applied (except for the omission of
footnotes and subject to year-end adjustments), and are consistent
with past financial statements of the Buyer.

     (c)  Since December 27, 1996, there has not been:

          (1) any material adverse change in the financial
condition or the operations of the business of the Buyer;

          (2)  any obligation or liability incurred (whether
accrued, absolute, contingent or otherwise, and whether due or to
become due), except in the ordinary course of its business; and

          (3)  any default in any material obligation of the Buyer.

     5.3  Financial Matters.

     (a)  The value of the assets of Buyer at a fair valuation in
the aggregate will, immediately following the Closing and after
giving effect to all of the transactions contemplated by this
Agreement, exceed the amount of its debts and other liabilities
(including contingent liabilities).

     (b)  The assets of Buyer will not, immediately following
Closing and after giving effect to all of the transactions
contemplated by this Agreement, constitute unreasonably small
capital to carry out its business as conducted or as proposed to be
conducted.

     (c)  Buyer has received reasonably equivalent value in
exchange for its payment of the Purchase Price (including Buyer's
assumption of the Assumed Liabilities), and Buyer does not intend
to, will not, does not believe it will, nor should it reasonably
believe it will incur debts beyond its ability to pay such debts as
they mature (taking into account the timing and amounts of cash to
be received by Buyer and amounts to be payable on or in respect of

                                   13


debts of Buyer).

     5.4  No Breach of Statute or Contract.  Neither the execution
and delivery of this Agreement, nor compliance with the terms and
conditions hereof, on the part of Buyer will (i) violate any
provision of the articles of incorporation or by-laws of Buyer,
(ii) cause Buyer to breach any statute, ordinance or regulation of
any governmental authority, domestic or foreign, or (iii) conflict
with or result in a breach of any of the terms, conditions or
provisions of any agreement or instrument to which Buyer is a party
or by which it may be bound, or constitute a default thereunder.

     5.5  Brokers.  There are no claims for brokerage commissions,
finder's fees or similar compensation in connection with the
transactions contemplated by this Agreement based on any
arrangement or agreement made by or on behalf of Buyer.

     6.   Covenants of the Company Pending Closing.  The Company
covenants and agrees that from and after the date of this Agreement
and until the Closing:

     6.1  Access to Information.  Buyer and its authorized
representatives and agents (including, but not limited to,
potential lenders, accountants, attorneys, and agents and
representatives of the foregoing) shall have reasonably full access
during normal business hours to all plant and other properties,
books, records, contracts and documents of the Subject Business and
other materials reasonably related to the business and affairs of
the Company.  The Company shall furnish or cause to be furnished to
Buyer and its authorized representatives and agents all information
with respect to the business and affairs of the Company as they may
reasonably request, including such information as Buyer may
reasonably request for the purpose of disclosure to any financial
institution in connection with providing such financing as Buyer
deems to be in its best interest, all subject to the terms of the
Mutual Confidentiality Agreement executed by the Company and Buyer. 
Any inspection or testing of physical properties or facilities by
Buyer must be approved in advance by an officer of the Company. 
Buyer and its representatives and agents shall not meet with
representatives of the Union (as defined in Section 10.16) or
discuss any potential collective bargaining agreement without the
consent of the Company and without a representative of the Company
being present.

     6.2  Carry On In Regular Course.  The Company will use its
best efforts to cause the Subject Business to be conducted
according to its ordinary and usual course and substantially in the
manner heretofore conducted, except as contemplated by this
Agreement.  The Company will use its reasonable best efforts to
preserve in all material respects its business organization and
business relationships.

                                  14


     6.3  Best Efforts.  The Company will use its best efforts to
cause all conditions to the consummation of the transactions
contemplated hereby which are within the control of the Company to
be satisfied as promptly as practicable, shall not undertake any
course of action inconsistent therewith or which would make any of
its representations contained herein untrue at or prior to Closing, 
and shall deliver at Closing all documents which are to be
delivered by it as a condition to Buyer's obligations hereunder.

     6.4  Insurance.  The Company shall maintain all existing or
equivalent insurance covering the Subject Business, the premises
from which it is currently conducting the Subject Business and/or
the Purchased Assets in effect as of the date hereof.

     6.5  Property and Assets.  The Purchased Assets will be used,
preserved and maintained in the ordinary course of business to the
same extent as is consistent with past customs and practices.

     6.6  Corporate Action and Consents.  The Company shall take
all corporate and other action necessary to consummate the
transaction contemplated hereby and shall use its best efforts to
obtain all corporate and similar consents and approvals required
from third-parties to enable it to carry out the transactions
contemplated by this Agreement.

     6.7  Financial Affairs.  The Company shall not take any action
(or omit to take any action) within its control which would
necessitate disclosure on Schedules 4.2(a), (b) or (c).

     6.8  Excluded Liabilities.  The Company covenants and agrees
that at or prior to Closing, or, as appropriate, after Closing,
that it shall pay, perform and discharge all of the Excluded
Liabilities, and shall do so no later than their respective due
dates, and that the Company will maintain adequate reserves, or, at
this time, has adequate assurances that all sums necessary to pay
the Excluded Liabilities shall be available to the Company.

     6.9  No Further Encumbrances.  The Company covenants and
agrees that it shall not, for one (1) year after the Effective
Time, impose, or allow the imposition of, any lien or encumbrance
on the Property securing money borrowed, other than the two (2)
existing mortgages on the Property, and shall not request or allow
any future advances to be made under said existing mortgages so as
to increase the outstanding principal balances thereunder in excess
of their respective present outstanding principal balances. 
Notwithstanding the above, this covenant shall not in any manner
restrict the Company's sale of the Property at any time to a bona
fide purchaser for value.

                                   15



     7.   Covenants of Buyer.

     7.1  Best Efforts.  Buyer will use its best efforts to cause
all conditions of the consummation of the transactions contemplated
hereby which are within its sole control to be satisfied as soon as
practicable, shall not undertake any course of action inconsistent
therewith or which would make any of its representations contained
herein untrue at or prior to Closing, and shall deliver at Closing
all documents which are to be delivered by it as a condition to the
Company's obligations hereunder.

     7.2  Utilization and Maintenance of Records.  From and after
the Closing Date until the termination or expiration of the Lease
between the Company and the Buyer referred to in Schedule 8.2(d)
below (the "Utilization Period"), the Buyer shall have the right to
fully utilize and copy the Business Records.  At or prior to the
end of the Utilization Period, the Buyer shall notify the Company
that the Business Records are available at the Property to be
picked up or utilized there by the Company; provided, however, that
the Buyer shall be allowed to permanently retain and remove from
the Property all personnel records.  Buyer further covenants that,
during the Utilization Period, and upon request of the Company, the
Company and its authorized representatives shall have reasonable
access during normal business hours to the Business Records, and

representatives and agents reasonable access during normal business
hours to all personnel records, all as such records pertain to the

its best efforts to provide security or make other arrangements as
are necessary to release the Company from any reimbursement
obligations under outstanding letters of credit.

     7.4  Assistance to the Company.  Buyer covenants and agrees
that subsequent to the Closing it will provide the following
services to the Company:

     (a)  During the Utilization Period, Buyer shall provide the
Company with administrative support and personnel reasonably
sufficient to enable the Company (i) to prepare, file and make all
necessary property, payroll, withholding and sales tax reports, as
are required of the Company, (ii) to assist in gathering supporting
documentation and payments by the Company of Excluded Liabilities,
(iii) to prepare final business license tax and final sales tax
returns, and (iv) to provide similar assistance as the Company may
reasonably request.  Such services shall include, but not be
limited to, reasonable assistance in the preparation of all
required payroll related reports and returns, such as applicable
Forms W-2, Form 941 and unemployment reports and all materials
relating to the taxes and fees described in Section 10.13.

                                   16


     (b)  Buyer shall complete and deliver to the Company within 45

with respect to remaining insurance plan liabilities of the Company
and all outstanding claims and arbitrations in which the Company is
presently involved.

     7.5  Guarantees.  Buyer shall, at Closing, use its best
efforts to obtain releases of Diana from all guarantees by it of
liabilities of the Company.

     7.6  Payment of Assumed Liabilities.  Buyer covenants and
agrees that it shall pay, perform and discharge in the ordinary
course of business all of the Assumed Liabilities, and shall do so
no later than their respective due dates.  Buyer further covenants
and agrees that all payments made by the Buyer after the Closing
Date to individuals or entities to whom trade payables that
constitute Assumed Liabilities are owed (the "Assumed Trade Debt
Vendors") shall be designated (by notation on the check or
remittance advice to the Assumed Trade Debt Vendor accompanying
payment, copies of which shall be retained by Buyer for no less
than three years following the Closing Date) as repayment first of
outstanding indebtedness constituting Assumed Liabilities.  For
purposes of the preceding sentence, such designation, whenever
possible, shall be made by reference to a specific invoice number.

     8.   Closing.

     8.1  Time and Place of Closing.  The closing of this Agreement
(herein called the "Closing") shall be held at the offices of the

Agreement.

     8.4  Authority to Collect Receivables.  Upon Closing, the
Company shall fully cooperate with Buyer with respect to Buyer's
collection of the Receivables.  The Company shall, by communication
prepared and approved by Buyer, notify all account debtors that the
Company has assigned the Receivables to Buyer and shall instruct
such account debtors to make all payments directly to Buyer or to
such accounts as Buyer shall direct.  Any payments on such
Receivables which may be received by the Company or made payable to
the Company shall be immediately endorsed or paid over to Buyer. 
For the limited purpose of collecting the Receivables, the Company
hereby irrevocably appoints the Buyer as the Company's attorney-in-
fact, with full authority in the place and stead of the Company,
and in the name of the Company, or otherwise, to take any action
and to execute any instrument necessary or convenient to receive,
endorse and collect any drafts or other instruments, documents and
chattel paper in connection with the Receivables, to ask, demand,
collect, sue for, recover, issue valid credits in the ordinary
course of business (other than for the return of product assumed in
Section 1.2(f), and receive and give acquittance and receipts for
monies due with respect to the Receivables, and to file any claims
or take any action or institute any proceedings which the Buyer may

                                   20


deem necessary or desirable for the collection of the Receivables,
or otherwise to enforce the rights of the Company with respect to
the Receivables.

     With respect to any Receivables which are re-assigned to the
Company as uncollectible accounts under the Escrow Agreement, Buyer
shall fully cooperate with the Company with respect to Company's
collection, if possible, of such Receivables.  The Buyer shall
notify appropriate account debtors that the Buyer has re-assigned
the Receivables to the Company, and shall instruct such account
debtors to make all payments directly to the Company, or to such
accounts as the Company shall direct.  Any payments on such
Receivables which may be received by the Buyer or made payable to
the Buyer shall be immediately endorsed or paid over to the
Company.  In the event that such uncollectible account is, because
of valid credits or other adjustment issued by the Company, unable
of being further pursued by the Company, the Buyer, simultaneously
with making a Receivable Claim (as that phrase is defined in the
Escrow Agreement) with the Escrow Agent, shall deliver to the
Company appropriate documentation reflecting such valid credit or
adjustment.  Buyer shall proceed diligently to collect the
Receivables in the ordinary course of its business, and Buyer will
not take any action to interfere with or impair the orderly
collection of the Receivables; provided, however, that the parties
agree that Buyer shall not be restricted in any manner in dealing
with account receivable debtors as it would normally deal with such
debtors in the ordinary course of its business, including, without
limitation, the procurement of new credit applications, instituting
new credit terms or payment schedules, and, if prudent in Buyer's
judgment, ceasing to do business with certain debtors.

     The parties agree that as a condition of Closing, the Buyer
shall be required to execute and deliver that Indemnity and Release
Agreement in favor of the Company's lender ("Sanwa"), in the form
attached as Schedule 8.4 (the "Indemnity Agreement").  In the event
that Sanwa makes any claim against the Buyer pursuant to the
Indemnity Agreement, the parties agree that the Buyer shall be
entitled to immediately make a Receivable Claim with the Escrow
Agent for the claimed amount, and that the Buyer shall direct Sanwa
to deliver the applicable returned or insufficient fund check(s) to
the Company.  For all purposes hereunder and under the Escrow
Agreement, the amount of any claim by Sanwa under the Indemnity
Agreement shall be treated in the same manner as an uncollectible
Receivable and as a Disputed Account (as that phrase is defined in
the Escrow Agreement).

     The Buyer shall use its best efforts to have the UCC-1
executed by the Company, as debtor, filed in connection with the
sale of the Receivables, in favor of NationsBank, to be terminated
of record within one (1) year of the Closing Date.

                                   21


     8.5  Use of Name.  For a period not less than six (6) months
from Closing, but not to exceed the Utilization Period, the Buyer
shall have the right to use the Company's name, and derivations
thereof, incident to the Buyer's use, in the normal course of
business, of the Supplies, existing signage on the Property,
existing signage with respect to vehicles and other equipment, and
existing stationery, checks and other supplies constituting a part
of the Purchased Assets; provided, however, that Buyer shall have
the right to use the Company's name incident to Buyer's use of the
tractors and trailers under the UPS equipment lease for the
remaining term of said lease.  Buyer shall indemnify and hold the
Company harmless from and against any loss, cost, expense or other
damage (including reasonable attorneys' fees) resulting from,
arising out of, or incurred with respect to, the Buyer's use of the
Company name, or any derivation thereof, after Closing.

     9.   Survival of Warranties; Indemnification.

     9.1  Survival of Representations and Warranties.  The
representations and warranties, and the covenants and agreements to
be performed after the Closing of each party contained in this
Agreement or in any document delivered pursuant hereto shall be
deemed continuing and shall survive the Closing for a period of one
(1) year after the Closing Date, unless a longer period is
specifically provided.

     9.2  Indemnification by the Company.  The Company shall
indemnify and hold Buyer harmless from and against any loss, cost,
expense or other damage (including reasonable attorneys' fees)
resulting from, arising out of, or incurred with respect to (i) the
falsity or breach of any representation or warranty made by the
Company herein, (ii) the breach of any covenant or agreement made
by the Company herein, and (iii) any debts, obligations, contracts
and liabilities of the Company other than Assumed Liabilities,
including, without limitation, the Excluded Liabilities and any
liability which may follow the Purchased Assets pursuant to
applicable bulk sales laws (except to the extent that such
liability is or arises from an Assumed Liability).

     9.3  Indemnification by Buyer.  Buyer shall indemnify and hold
the Company harmless from and against any loss, cost, expense or
other damage (including reasonable attorneys' fees) resulting from,
arising out of, or incurred with respect to (i) the falsity or
breach of any representation or warranty made by Buyer herein, (ii)
the breach of any covenant or agreement made by the Buyer herein,
(iii) any Assumed Liabilities, or (iv) any obligations or
liabilities of Buyer.

     9.4  Limitations.  The foregoing notwithstanding, any claim
for indemnification under Sections 9.2 and 9.3 shall be asserted by
written notice ("Indemnification Notice") specifying its nature in
reasonable detail by the party claiming indemnification.  In the

                                   22


event such Indemnification Notice is not given within one (1) year
following the Closing Date, the right to assert such claim shall
lapse.  The Company's indemnification obligation shall in no event
exceed the Purchase Price.

     9.5  Defense of Claim.  If any third party shall assert any
claims against Buyer which, if successful, would entitle Buyer to
indemnification under this Section 9, Buyer shall give notice of
such claim to the Company and the Company shall have the right to
assume the defense of such claim at its expense.  If the Company
does assume the defense of such claim, it shall indemnify and hold
Buyer harmless, to the extent provided in Sections 9.1 through 9.4
and Section 9.6, from and against any and all losses, damages and
liabilities, including, without limitation, reasonable attorneys'
fees, caused by or arising out of any settlement or judgment of
such claim.  In addition, Buyer shall have the right to participate
in the defense of such claim at its expense, in which case (i) the
Company agrees to cooperate in providing information to and
consulting with Buyer about the claim, and (ii) the Company shall
not consent to the entry of judgment or enter into any settlement
without the prior written consent of Buyer, which consent shall not
unreasonably be withheld.  If the Company does not assume the
defense of any such claim, Buyer may defend against and/or settle
the claim in such manner and on such terms as they in good faith
deem appropriate and shall be indemnified, to the extent provided
in Sections 9.1 through 9.4 and Section 9.6, for the amount of any
judgment or settlement and for all losses or expenses, legal or
otherwise, incurred in connection with the defense and/or
settlement of any claim.  Failure by the Company to give written
notice to Buyer of its election to defend any claim within fifteen
(15) days after written notice thereof is given to the Company by
Buyer shall be deemed a waiver of its right to defend such claim. 
The Buyer shall be entitled to make an Indemnification Claim (as
that phrase is defined in the Escrow Agreement) with the Escrow
Agent, in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth in the
Escrow Agreement for such claims, without first complying with the
procedures set forth in this Section 9.5.

     9.6  Buyer's Remedies.  Any provision herein to the contrary
notwithstanding, Buyer shall be entitled to any remedy at law or in
equity in order to enforce any provision of this Agreement,
including, without limitation, specific performance and injunctive
relief; provided that Buyer's remedy for monetary damages shall be
limited by the provisions of Sections 9.4 and 9.5 above.

     9.7  Prompt Notice.  Buyer and the Company covenant and agree
to promptly provide to the other party any Indemnification Notice
described in Section 9.4 above.

                                   23


     10.  Miscellaneous.

     10.1 Expenses Incident to Transaction.  Each party shall pay
his or its own expenses and costs relating to the negotiation,
execution and performance of this Agreement, including all fees of
their respective attorneys, accountants, financial advisors and
other professionals.

     10.2 Further Assurances.  After the Closing, the Company will
execute and deliver such further instruments of conveyance and
transfer and take such other reasonable actions as Buyer may
request to carry out the transactions contemplated by this
Agreement.

     10.3 Governing Law.  This Agreement shall be construed and
interpreted according to the laws of Georgia.

     10.4 Notices.  All notices hereunder shall be in writing and
shall be deemed to have been duly given, and all document

law.  Any news release must be agreed to in writing between the
parties as to the text before it is released.  This Agreement is
otherwise subject to the Mutual Confidentiality Agreement between
the parties.

     10.6 Entire Agreement.  This Agreement and its schedules, and
the Mutual Confidentiality Agreement executed by Buyer and the
Company, embody the entire agreement among the parties hereto with
respect to the transactions contemplated herein, and there have
been and are no agreements, representations or warranties between
the parties other than those set forth or provided for herein. 
This Agreement supersedes all proposals, letters or intent and
other agreements relating to the subject matter hereof.

     10.7 Headings.  The headings used in this Agreement are
inserted for convenience only and shall not constitute a part
hereof.

     10.8 Modification; Waiver.  No modification or waiver of any
provision of this Agreement or consent to any departure therefrom
shall be effective unless in writing and signed by authorized
officers of the Company and Buyer.

     10.9 Counterparts.  This Agreement may be executed
simultaneously in counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an
original, but all of which together shall constitute one and the
same instrument.  It shall not be necessary that any single
counterpart be executed by all parties hereto provided that each
party shall have executed at least one counterpart.

     10.10  Binding Nature.  This Agreement shall be binding and
inure to the benefit of all the parties named herein and their
respective successors and assigns.

     10.11  Bulk Sales.  The parties each hereby waive compliance
with any applicable bulk sales or similar law of any jurisdiction
in connection with the sale of the Purchased Assets.

     10.12  Termination and Abandonment.  The transactions provided
for by this Agreement may be terminated and abandoned at any time
on or before the Closing:

          (a)  by mutual written consent of Buyer and the Company,
     without liability on the part of any party to the other; or

                                   25


          (b)  by Buyer, if any of the conditions of Section 8.2
     above have not been met or have not been waived in writing by
     Buyer as of the Closing Date; or

          (c)  by the Company, if any of the conditions of Section
     8.3 above have not been met and have not been waived in
     writing by the Company as of the Closing Date;

          (d)  by Buyer or the Company, if the transaction
     contemplated by this Agreement has not closed on or before
     February 3, 1997, provided the party seeking to terminate
     shall have performed in all material respects all of its
     covenants under this Agreement which were to have been
     performed prior to the time of termination; or

          (e)  by Buyer by written notice to the Company on or
     prior to Closing (the "Inspection Period"), if (a) Buyer shall
     have determined during its due diligence investigation of the
     Company that any matters had been materially misrepresented by
     the Company or (b) if Buyer shall not have received
     unconditional assurances satisfactory to it that it will
     obtain financing on terms reasonably satisfactory to it to
     consummate the purchase of the Purchased Assets, provided that
     Buyer has used its best efforts to obtain such unconditional
     assurances.

In the event of termination and abandonment by any party as
provided in this Section 10.12, written notice shall forthwith be
given to the other party by facsimile transmission or as set forth
in Section 10.4 above.  In the event of such termination, this
Agreement shall terminate and become null and void other than with
respect to Section 10.1 and Section 9.  No termination shall
release a party of any liability for breach hereof.  The Mutual
Confidentiality Agreement executed by Buyer and the Company shall
survive any termination of this Agreement.


     10.13     Sales and Transfer Taxes.  The Buyer shall pay and
discharge when due any and all liability for recording fees, sales
and use taxes, documentary taxes, motor vehicle transfer taxes and
all similar fees, taxes and costs relating to the consummation of
the transactions contemplated in this Agreement.

     10.14     Assumption of Employee Benefit Plans.  With respect
to the employees of the Company who become employees of the Buyer
after the Closing, Buyer will assume the Employee Benefit
Liabilities set forth on Schedule 1.2(e), along with all of the
powers previously reserved by the Company under the plans related
to the Employee Benefit Liabilities to amend, terminate or modify
such contracts.

     10.15     Employment of Company Employees.  Buyer agrees to
provide a written offer of employment or written posting of notice

of offer of employment effective as of the Effective Time to
substantially all employees of the Company promptly following the
Effective Time, which offer shall be conditioned upon the Closing. 
Nothing in this Section shall create any rights on behalf of such
employees as third-party beneficiaries with respect to this
obligation.  Buyer hereby agrees to indemnify and hold the Company
harmless from and against any and all claims and liability arising
solely as a result of Buyer's conduct after the Closing taken with
respect to the employment of or refusal to hire a previous Company
employee, including, without limitation, any claims or liability,
based on the Buyer's acts or omissions arising after the Closing,
and arising under the Workers Adjustment and Retraining
Notification Act ("WARN") and any regulations promulgated
thereunder or any similar state or local laws.

     10.16     Union Contract.  The Buyer agrees to employ
substantially all of the Company's employees covered by the current
collective bargaining agreement between the Company and Local
Number 1996 of the United Food and Commercial Workers Union (the
"Union"), effective as of the Effective Time, but conditioned upon
Closing.  (The agreement with the Union is herein referred to as
the "Collective Bargaining Agreement.")  In addition, the Buyer
agrees to recognize the Union as the current exclusive collective
bargaining representative of the employees covered by the
Collective Bargaining Agreement, a complete copy of which has been
previously furnished to Buyer.  Nothing in this Section shall
create any rights on behalf of such Union or any other union as
third-party beneficiaries with respect to this obligation.

     IN WITNESS WHEREOF, the parties hereto have caused this
Agreement to be duly executed all as of the day and year first
above written.
