Sysco Completes Kent Frozen Foods Acquisition
Sysco Corporation, the leading global foodservice distribution company, has completed the acquisition of Kent Frozen Foods, a successful U.K.-based foodservice distributor, in a cash transaction for an undisclosed price.
The acquisition, which was approved by the Competition and Markets Authority in March, will see KFF join Sysco’s other U.K. businesses, including Brakes, Fresh Direct and M&J Seafood.
“This acquisition is a perfect addition to our portfolio of businesses in the U.K.,” said Sysco senior vice president, International Foodservice Operations – Europe, Ajoy Karna. “We are delighted to welcome KFF associates into the Sysco family of companies.”
Kent Frozen Foods will continue to operate as an independent entity, but will now enjoy the support of the world’s largest foodservice company, Sysco, with the opportunity to capitalize on closer working relationships with Sysco’s other U.K. and European businesses, where appropriate.
