Transaction Overview

Spayne Lindsay is delighted to announce that it has advised Samworth Brothers, one of the UK’s leading food manufacturers, on the sale of Blueberry Foods to Bakkavor, a leading global provider of fresh prepared foods.


Established in 2008, Blueberry Foods manufactures a range of premium desserts including cheesecakes, hot-eating desserts and pot desserts for UK grocery retailers from a purpose-built facility in Leicestershire with approximately 420 employees.


Samworth Brothers, commented:


“Blueberry Foods has always been a very well-regarded business within Samworth Brothers. However, we have concluded that Blueberry Foods will flourish better in an organisation where there is more focus on desserts and where it can be part of a larger scale desserts business. Bakkavor is delighted that Blueberry Foods is joining its team and believes there are great opportunities for the business to thrive in its ownership.”
