Valeo Foods Group to Acquire Matthew Walker
 

We have agreed terms to acquire Matthew Walker, the #1 UK-based Christmas pudding producer, from 2 Sisters Food Group.
 
Established in 1899, the Matthew Walker pudding business is the world’s leading Christmas pudding producer. Employing approximately 200 people at its specialist manufacturing facility in Derbyshire, the company produces a wide range of high-quality pudding products, seasonal sponges, cakes and free-from dessert products for the retail and foodservice channels in the UK and for key export markets. Matthew Walker’s products are sold through all the UK’s leading grocers, discounters and luxury food retailers.
 
Commenting on the acquisition, Seamus Kearney,  CEO, Valeo Foods Group, said: “Matthew Walker is a great addition to our growing portfolio of strong international brands and follows our recent acquisition of the Kettle crisp brand in Europe and the Middle East. The company’s leading market position and its portfolio of great products, all using traditional cooking methods, will provide us with exciting opportunities for growth across new and existing channels and markets.”
