Our mission of creating a unique supply base capability enables us to support Asda and Walmart's Mission to ‘Save Money Live Better’. We are the 2nd largest privately owned food processing business in the UK. With over 4000 colleagues we are currently spread over twelve UK sites and several country offices that span five of the seven continents and we don't plan to stop there.
