Country Valley Announces Acquisition

Country Valley Foods Ltd has acquired the Billingham division of poultry specialist Cocked Hat Farm Foods Ltd.

The merged companies will operate from the larger Billingham site and create one of the largest meat and poultry wholesalers in the north east.

The existing Darlington site will now become a dedicated catering butcher and meat processing facility with emphasis on locally sourced beef, lamb and pork and bespoke products for top quality hotels and restaurants.

"This is a fantastic opportunity to develop our wholesale business, widen our product range and cover a larger geographical area," said Ruth Conner, marketing manager for Country Valley Foods Ltd.

"Additional space at our Darlington site also enables us to offer new and innovative products to our catering customers."
