Monkhill Confectionery announced yesterday [Wednesday] its proposed acquisition of Kernels Snack Products from Harrington Consumer Products Ltd. Kernels Snack Products produces popcorn for entertainment venues, including cinemas across the UK. As Monkhill produces Butterkist, a pre-packed popcorn, as well as a wide range of confectionery, the proposed acquisition will bring together two complementary operations and a specialist cinema distribution service.
