UK herbs supplier Langmead Group is to buy local peer Scotherbs for an undisclosed sum.

Scotherbs is a fresh culinary herb company servicing retail and food manufacturing customers across the UK.

The deal with Langmead will further support Scotherbs’ plans for growth through continued investment in expanding Scottish herb growing, improved manufacturing facilities and new product development, the company said.

“Scotherbs will operate as a distinct business within Langmead group, serving specific customers and markets, though with the benefit of increased group support resources. Scotherbs has a clear strategy for growth which is yielding current success,” Ian Summerfield, CEO of Langmead, said.
