UK: Fuerst Day Lawson buys Westmill Foods' seeds facility from ABF
Fuerst Day Lawson (FDL), a global supplier of products to the food, beverage, fragrance and chemical industries, has acquired Westmill Foods' seeds processing facility.
Westmill Foods' seeds processing facility, which was owned by Associated British Foods (ABF), supplies rice, noodles and flours to supermarkets and specialist ethnic food stores. Based at Little Walden, the 65,000 square foot facility processes and blends seeds and pulses primarily for UK bakery customers. FDL plans to relocate its current blending and processing equipment activities, currently sited at Halstead, to Walden this summer.
FDL said the acquisition was in line with expansion plans for the company's seeds and natural products division.
