Independent frozen meal delivery business, Links Food, has been sold to private investors in a deal initiated and project managed by Smith Cooper.
Links Foods, operating a Wiltshire Farm Foods business, is the UK’s leading frozen meal home delivery service, delivering nutritionally balanced ready-made meals throughout the UK.
Wiltshire Farm Foods is owned by Apetito, a German company with £500m turnover and 8,000 employees in Germany, UK, France, Netherlands and Canada, which manufactures meals for institutions such as hospitals, care home groups and local authorities.
Corporate Finance Partner John Farnsworth at Smith Cooper commented: “This transaction breaks new ground for the brand in the UK, being the first arm’s length deal between independent buyers and sellers. Wiltshire Farm Food’s products and systems are world class, making it the clear UK market leader and Links Foods is an exceptionally well run and profitable business in that brand.”
