Chilled food to go manufacturer Adelie Foods has announced that it has acquired Irish food manufacturer and distributor The Bite Group for an undisclosed sum.
The deal will further strengthen UK-based Adelie’s existing manufacturing and distribution operation and provide the company with access to the growing Irish food to go market. Formed 17 years ago, the company supplies a wide range of branded and private-label chilled, ready-to-eat foods, and third party products, to the retail, foodservice and travel sectors.
Adelie Foods chairman Per Harkjaer said: “I am delighted that we have been able to acquire Irish food to go manufacturer and distributor The Bite Group. This will further strengthen our intention to be the leading food to go supplier in the UK and Irish market. I am extremely excited by the opportunities that the deal will provide both us and our customers for future growth.”
Adelie Foods director of international business Mark Keating added: “The deal is a great opportunity for both businesses and will allow us to extend our existing customer offer and enable them to share with us the exciting opportunities that lay ahead. I am looking forward to working with its founder, Michael Keogh, over the coming months.”
