Compleat Food Group makes two acquisitions to expand its portfolio

Compleat Food Group makes two acquisitions to expand its portfolio acquisitions, business, chilled foods, food, Group, meat, Operations, poultry & seafood Food and Beverage Business

The recent acquisition of chilled party food manufacturer SK and dips and deli fillings producer Zorba by The Compleat Food Group signifies a significant expansion for the group. With a combined turnover of more than £160m and over 1,150 employees, these two companies will fortify Compleat’s own turnover to over £900m and bring its employee count to close to 5,000.

According to Nick Field, chief executive at The Compleat Food Group, “We’re incredibly excited about these two significant additions and what they bring to the group, with both companies having strong heritage in their categories for creating great food that people love.”

The group plans to continue investing in both SK Foods and Zorba Foods to extend their respective capabilities, allowing for further innovation and inspiration within their categories. This move is in line with the group’s strategy of growth through acquisitions, as seen with the previous purchases of Palace Culture and Wrights Food Group in recent years.

Jeremy Faulkner, chief executive of SK Foods and Zorba, added, “At the heart of both SK Foods and Zorba is a commitment to real food values. With The Compleat Food Group, we have found a natural partner who not only shares our values but also the ambition to invest and support us in driving further innovation and growth for our categories and key partners.”

The group’s recent acquisitions follow the appointment of Tom Riley as its new chief financial officer, highlighting a period of rapid growth and expansion for The Compleat Food Group.

SK Foods, formed in 1987, specializes in high-quality, globally inspired party foods, while Zorba Foods, established in 1976, creates authentic Greek houmous and a range of dips and sauces for retail and foodservice. Both companies hold a significant share of the market in their respective categories, making them valuable additions to The Compleat Food Group’s portfolio.
