Global investment firm H.I.G Capital has announced the acquisition of a majority stake in food-to-go business Adelie Foods.

The deal will enable Adelie to continue plans for expansion in the food-to-go sector. Adelie supplies foodservice and retail customers with chilled food products. It owns the Urban sandwich brand.

Adelie CEO Gavin Cox said: "We have been engaged in the process of seeking a new investor for the business for several months and I am delighted that we have now reached an agreement with like-minded partners who are such a strong cultural fit for our organisation and are fully supportive of our plans for growth, both in our home and international markets.”

Commercial director at Adelie, John Hyman added: "The fact that we have been able to attract investment from an organisation of H.I.G’s calibre is a fantastic testament to the progress we have made since the formation of Adelie Foods in 2010.  This deal has given us a great platform on which to develop our position in the UK Food-to-Go market and in turn to work in partnership with our customers to support their growth plans in this dynamic sector.”
