NI burger meat supplier wound up after buyer not found
Millar Savoury Foods, the Northern Irish pie and burger supplier, is being wound up after the administrators failed to find a buyer.
The family-run Londonderry company went into administration in June, blaming an inability to pass rising costs on to supermarket customers. It was a supplier to Asda, Tesco and Sainsbury’s, as well as to foodservice across the UK and Republic of Irealand.
All 36 employees were made redundant.
Millar Savoury Foods was established as a butcher’s shop in 1969, but extended its operation into making sausages, burgers, pies, sausage rolls, Scotch eggs and cottage pies. It launched two new brands, Mulligan’s Munchers and Millfarm in 2007 and collaborated with chef Paul Rankin for a new range of pies in 2009. This helped generate a 21% hike in turnover and grow its business with the UK multiples.
The company is understood to have had debts of around £500,000.
