The UK’s leading independently-owned dairy group has acquired food decorations producer Nimbus Foods from Valeo Foods for an undisclosed amount.

Meadow Foods – which predominantly supplies dairy-based ingredients – said the move will expand its portfolio into new product areas.

According to Mark Chantler, CEO of Meadow Foods, the two companies also share many synergies, including a high customer crossover, product knowledge and manufacturing expertise.

Nimbus Foods is a leading supplier of inclusions, decorations and toppings throughout Europe across categories like bakery, snacks, cereals, confectionery, desserts and ice cream.

It operates from a BRC AA Grade factory in Dolgellau, Wales.

“Nimbus fits perfectly with our growth strategy of pushing further into the value added ingredients space,”​ said Chantler.

“This acquisition will … strengthen our position as a leading supplier of confectionery ingredients [as] we continue to grow with the demands of our customers who are looking for strategic partners that can offer unique ingredients solutions​.” 

The announcement follows an investment in Meadow Foods by UK private equity firm Exponent in August 2018.
