CP Foods has announced its acquisition of a controlling interest in The Foodfellas Ltd with effect from 15 October 2016.
CP Foods has a broad portfolio of prepared meals, snack foods and protein-based products whilst The Foodfellas is a UK-based foodservice supplier specialising in supplying the growing casual dining market both within the wider casual channel as well as the UK's important on-trade food market.
The acquisition sees the directors of The Foodfellas retain a significant shareholding in the new business and remain fully committed to working collaboratively to continue the growth of the wider business.
Marc Werter, director of The Foodfellas, added: "We are delighted to be able to join the extended family of such a dynamic and exciting global business. We've spent the last decade working tirelessly to ensure The Foodfellas is the best possible business it can be - sharing a range of targeted products with some of the biggest names in UK foodservice. Our product ranges complement each other perfectly and ensure that our combined portfolio is now not only comprehensive in its scope and scale, but also best in class in terms of performance, taste and customer service.
The move will see the current CP Foods (UK) foodservice team merged with The Foodfellas team.
