Meat companies make fastest-growth list

Northern Irish meat firm Finnebrogue and chicken firm Benson Park have been listed as two of the fastest-growing companies in the UK.

The Investec Bank Mid-Market 100 is a countdown of the UKs fastest-growing private companies, most notably manufacturers and food and drink. These sectors collectively account for almost two-fifths of the UK 100 companies, with 20% and 19% respectively.

Chicken processor Benson Park, which was recently acquired by Cranswick, reported strong profits of 41.1m for the year 2013/2014. Meanwhile, Finnebrogue, which is set to hit a turnover target of 45 million this year, now includes The Good Little Company focusing on sustainably developed pork sausages, burgers and bacon.

Investecs head of growth and acquisition finance Ed Cottrell said: It is great to see mid-market growth coming from all four corners of the UK and across a broad range of industry sectors.

We know from our experience of working with mid-sized businesses that they are highly committed to investing for long-term growth and we look forward to seeing these companies go from strength to strength in the future.
