Directors of a leading South West poultry firm Lloyd
Maunder Ltd. have today confirmed that 2 Sisters Food Group Ltd. has purchased
the company with plans for future investment.
Lloyd Maunder, based in mid-Devon, England, pioneered the production of
poultry for the retail market 50 years ago. Today, the company is one of the
UK's leading producers of specialist poultry.
2 Sisters Food Group, based in the West Midlands, is a leading European
food company supplying chicken products to the retail, food service and food
manufacturing sectors. It has annual sales of more than half a billion pounds
and 4,500 staff employed across 12 sites in the UK, plus operations in Holland
and the USA.
2 Sisters Food Group has purchased Lloyd Maunder for an undisclosed sum,
with plans to expand the business, which already dominates poultry production in
the South West.
â€œWe're planning to develop the operation further as a regional centre of
excellence for specialist poultry production,â€ said Ranjit Singh, founder and
CEO of 2 Sisters Food Group. â€œLloyd Maunder has been a leading light in the UK
poultry industry for 50 years and we'll be looking to build on that success. By
acquiring such a good production base in the South West, we can now offer
national pricing to our customers, but via local sourcing. This is good news for
our carbon footprint.â€
