Charles Bloor, Managing Director of TS Bloor, commented:
“It is exciting to join forces with a market leader for the next step in the growth story at TS Bloor. As well as our existing range we are looking forward to offering new products to our customers through the combination of Karro’s high welfare pork supply and 130 year old Wiltshire brine with our newly invested facilities. This will only serve to strengthen our position in the market place.
