Highland Game, Scotland’s leading venison specialist, has announced the purchase of the UK’s largest venison and game processor business Rick Bestwick.

Effective from 1 July, the acquisition of the Chesterfield-based business will see Highland Game move into the number one position within the UK market.

“The key to success is to have sustainable growth. We very much look forward to welcoming new suppliers as well as continuing with our loyal and conscientious suppliers. The takeover is a unique opportunity to develop our business on successful past performance and I am personally very proud to be a part in the future development of the business.”
