Meadow Foods, the UK’s largest independent dairy and leading supplier of dairy ingredients to the food industry, have been strengthening their portfolio of value-added products through strategic acquisitions and investment in innovation.
Meadow Foods Ltd have now acquired from Nijjar Dairies Ltd (Freshways) certain assets related to the processing of Packed Milks & Creams. The acquisition will enable Meadow Foods to expand its existing business in the supply of Packed Milks & Creams to customers in the UK.
Along with the acquisition, Meadow Foods have secured a long-term supply of bulk cream from Nijjar Dairies to service their growing business; both within Packed Milks & Creams and other product types such as the manufacture of Butter, Anhydrous Milk Fat (AMF) and Ghee.
Mark Chantler, CEO at Meadow Foods, comments: “We’ve made significant investments in the business to enable us to extend our product portfolio and meet the changing needs of our customers. We’re very proud of the high-quality dairy products we produce and the relationships we have with our customers in helping to develop market leading products.”
