Cranswick acquires Kingston

Pork supplier Cranswick yesterday said it has acquired cooked and roasted meat producer Kingston Foods. Cranswick said the move would help broaden the company’s customer base. Cranswick said it has acquired the entire issued share capital of Kingston Foods, which had gross assets of £3.7m on 27 January. Tony Turner and Paul Williams will continue in their current positions as managing director and operations director once they have sold the firm.
