Dunsters Farm acquires The Little Food Company

Caterforce member Dunsters Farm has signed off on its first acquisition – completing a deal to take over The Little Food Company.

The Bury-based wholesaler is aiming to explain its offer for customers and sees The Little Food Company as having good synergy – having a strong customer based in the education sector.

The move is a big moment for Dunsters Farm, which switched buying groups from Confex to Caterforce last year to strengthen their position and increase the range they offer customers.

“We’re extremely excited to welcome The Little Food Company to the Dunsters Farm family,” said Hannah Barlow, Managing Director, Dunsters Farm.

“There is a lot of synergy between our companies regarding customer base and geographical coverage and both companies will benefit from the collaboration.

“The Little Food Company has a wealth of experience in the frozen sector which will enable us to launch a brand new category to our customers over the coming months.

“In turn, we look forward to supporting The Little Food Company with their plans to extend their product range, further improving their offer for their customers.”

The Little Food Company’s Operations Director, Mark Keats, will continue to care for the firm’s day-to-day operations and will join the Dunsters Farm senior management team immediately.

“This is an exciting chapter offering enormous potential for both businesses,” Keats added.

“We look forward to sharing our expertise in the frozen sector and being part of Dunsters Farm’s ambitious growth plans.”
