PORTALES -- Sunland peanut company in Portales has a new parent company.

Golden Boy paid $26-million for Sunland.

Two other companies were interested.

This sale came after Sunland filed for bankruptcy this past fall.

Prior to that, one of their products was linked to a salmonella outbreak.

The plant in Portales was shut down but later re-opened.
