AB Mauri UK and Ireland has announced it has acquired both Holgran and Fleming Howden from Rank Hovis Milling for an undisclosed sum.

Gainsborough-based Holgran is a supplier of malted grains, seeds and blend inclusions, while Fleming Howden – based in Edinburgh – sources, manufactures and distributes a wide range of quality bakery ingredients and yeast products.

“Both businesses are well established with rich heritages and have strong reputations. They are well-run and have highly capable, passionate and dedicated teams of people; principles that align perfectly to the business values of AB Mauri,”​ said Andrew Pollard MD of AB Mauri UK and Ireland.

“In light of these exciting acquisitions, we expect to continue developing our existing technical capability and broaden market opportunities alike.

“Most importantly, AB Mauri will be able to build on its ability to flexibly respond to customers,”​ he added.

AB Mauri UK & Ireland – formed from the merger of Cereform, Mauri Products and Gb Plange UK – provides a range of technical bakery ingredients and yeast products to bakers in the UK and Ireland.
