Vion sale progresses

Following the sale of its pork business in December, Vion proceeded with the disposal of some of the remaining assets of its UK businesses.

During December, the Vion Food Group announced the sale of its Pork Division to a management group, headed by Seamus Carr and backed by the private equity group Endless LLP.

The company will have its Head Office at Malton - with other sites at Wiveliscombe, Haverhill, Scunthorpe, Hull, Stoke and Enfield in England and at Cookstown in Northern Ireland, as well as the pig production business at Brydock in Aberdeenshire. As reported in The Grocer recently, the new business will be called the Karro Food Group.

Vion announced the imminent closure of Welsh Country Foods in Anglesey, following the loss of the contract to supply Asda and also finalised the sale of the Hall’s brand in Scotland to the Browns Food Group and the Debbie and Andrews sausage brand to the ABP Group, as also reported in The Grocer.
