Welsh company Peter’s Foodservice has acquired Surrey-based gourmet hot dog business Mom’s Fabulous Foods for an undisclosed amount.
Mom’s Fabulous Foods’ turnover is in excess of £2m and its hot dog ranges are supplied to stadiums, travel hubs, pub groups and fast food outlets across the country. The new deal is set to expand the Peter’s food-to-go offering while giving the Mom’s brand access to Peter’s’ extensive customer base across retail, foodservice, stadiums, caterers and fast food outlets through Peter’s ten van sales depots across the UK.
Caerphilly company Peter’s is best known for its ranges of savoury pastries, which it sells through both the retail and foodservice channels.
Mom’s Fabulous Foods founder and managing director Nick Pagett said: “Having worked with Peter’s for several years and seeing the growth of Mom’s within Peter’s, I am delighted to have reached this agreement which will be a catalyst to further growth. Like Peter’s, product quality, innovation and service are at the heart of our success, so this deal seemed like the right move for all concerned, in particular our consumers, who will now enjoy even more opportunities to taste our fabulous hot dogs.”
Peter’s Foodservice finance director David Peek added: “We are delighted to reach this agreement and further expand our product offering, especially in the fast growing food-to-go sector.
“Nick Pagett has developed a very successful business over the last three years and we have been extremely impressed with both the product quality and service level he and his team maintain. We are very excited to create further opportunities together after completing the acquisition.”
This month, the second S3FOOD voucher call selected 14 innovative SME-driven projects all across Europe. These projects will receive funding to develop and adopt innovative digital solutions.
The Global Taste Trends report maps out the key taste linked to trends across the US and Canada, Mexico, Latin America, Europe and the Asia Pacific Middle East and Africa highlighting how they vary and travel across these regions.
The acquisition significantly broadens Cargill’s offerings in the decorations space, enabling the company’s cocoa and chocolate business to better serve gourmet customers in Europe and worldwide.
