Bakkavor, one of the UK's largest own-label food manufacturers, has had a tumultuous 12 months. The company even warned last year about the future of the business as a going concern after it missed a deadline to pay creditors. However, Bakkavor's management is keen to look forward and, speaking to Dean Best in this month's just-food interview, CEO Agust Gudmundsson and CFO Richard Howes maintain a quiet optimism about the company's future.
