CP Foods (UK) has bought a controlling interest in The Foodfellas Ltd – the specialist foodservice importer and wholesaler.
CP Foods is part of one of the world’s largest food manufacturers with a portfolio that includes prepared meals, snack foods and protein-based products, while The Foodfellas Ltd is a UK-based foodservice supplier specialising in supplying the casual dining market as well as the on-trade sector. The acquisition sees the directors of Foodfellas retain a “significant shareholding” in the new business.
Clive Britton, commercial director of CP Foods said, “This is a great move for both businesses. From the beginning of the discussions, it was clear that we had a shared heritage in and passion for the food industry…”
Marc Werter, director of The Foodfellas Ltd said, “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.
