Bidcorp UK purchases Northern Bloc’s assets

Bidcorp UK has acquired the assets of British ice cream manufacturer Northern Bloc for an undisclosed sum.


Northern Bloc, based in Leeds, supplies retail and foodservice customers including Booths, the National Trust and restaurant chain Wagamama. It offers a range of frozen products including plant-based, bespoke and low-sugar ice creams in a variety of flavour profiles.


Northern Bloc will join Bidcorp UK’s network of manufacturing businesses, including Simply Food Solutions and Yarde Farm, and will continue to trade under its name, Northern Bloc.

Last year, Northern Bloc acquired ice cream businesses, Criterion Ices and Marine Ices, which will become part of the Bidcorp UK portfolio.


Jim Gouldie, supply chain and technical services director at Bidfood UK, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Dirk Mischendahl, managing director, and the Northern Bloc team to our Bidcorp UK family. Their passion, ethical ethos and reputation for providing great-tasting products at an excellent service completely resonates with our core mission and values. We look forward to supporting the team and expanding their brand presence through multiple routes to market.”


Dirk Mischendahl, managing director at Northern Bloc, added: “We are very excited about joining the Bidcorp UK group and having the opportunity to continue the journey we started in 2014, creating great flavours and making ice cream centre of plate!”
