UK: McCambridge sells own-label cake unit to PE firm NBGI

UK baked goods company McCambridge has sold its own-label cake division to private-equity firm NBGI.

UK baked goods company McCambridge has sold its own-label cake division to private-equity firm NBGI.

The deal, announced this morning (5 December), is for a business that operates bakeries in Manchester, Bradford, Blackburn, Salisbury and Szczecin in Poland, produces a range of cakes and pies for leading retailers.

Chairman Simon Webber said the cake division had “great growth potential”. However, he insisted a strategic review coupled with approaches from potential acquirers led the company to believe the unit would benefit from being demerged and managed as a separate entity.

“We are delighted that the business has been sold to NBGI Private Equity, who have a track record in owning businesses in the food industry,” said Webber. “The successful sale of the cake division is a great credit to all management and employees.”

Webber said the group’s focus will now turn to the firm’s two remaining divisions: Soreen malt loaves and fruit loaf products; and its bakery business in Ireland.

“We will continue to develop these business units on the back of the excellent work the divisions have completed already,” Webber said.
