By David Diaz

Below are the three companies in the Packaged Foods & Meats industry with the highest debt to EBITDA ratios. This ratio indicates how many years of EBITDA would be necessary in order to pay back all the debt (assuming Debt and EBITDA are constant). Typically, this ratio is considered to be alarming when it is greater than 3.0 but this can vary and should be looked at within the context of the industry.

Inventure Foods ranks highest with a a debt to EBITDA ratio of 17.3. Treehouse Foods is next with a a debt to EBITDA ratio of 10.9. Amplify Snack Br ranks third highest with a a debt to EBITDA ratio of 9.0.

Hain Celestial follows with a a debt to EBITDA ratio of 7.5, and Post Holdings In rounds out the top five with a a debt to EBITDA ratio of 6.8.
